    • Here is another recipe found in Rip Esselstyn's book: The Engine 2 Diet.

      This recipe has no bouillon, it's colorful, hearty, tasty, and a great way to get GREENS into your evening meal.  It's a really quick recipe- which always comes in handy.  It's also a fun way to try different types of unique pasta sauces.  This last time I made the recipe I found a butternut squash pasta sauce that made this dish SO GOOD!  This recipe is also a great leftover.


      Pasta Primavera



      1 red onion, chopped

      1 clove garlic, minced

      1 can corn, rinsed and drained (I used frozen)

      1 green or red bell pepper, seeded & chopped

      1 jalapeno pepper, minced (remove seeds to reduce heat) OPTIONAL

      1 bunch fresh kale, rinsed and chopped (extra fine for the kids)

      1 can diced tomatoes

      1 large jar pasta sauce (no fat, low sodium, optimal)

      16 ounce whole-grain spaghetti, cooked

      1/2 cup raw cashews, finely chopped


      Saute the onion, garlic, and corn in a large skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes.  Add the jalapeno (optional), bell pepper, and kale to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes.  Add the diced tomatoes and pasta sauce to the vegetables.  Ladle the sauce over the pasta and top with the cashews.
