I eat pasta quite often as a main dish, and I'm looking for some new ideas. In other words, I'm bored! I basically don't eat meat, so I need some vegetarian dishes. Some of my usual mix-ins are: roasted or sauteed veggies, such as red onions, garlic, bell peppers, shallots, carrots, mushrooms, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, etc. Some more ingredients I use often are: San Marzano canned tomatoes and dry white wine, and occasionally chicken broth. Cheeses: Parmigiano Reggiano, goat cheese, and extra sharp cheddar, etc. *Note: I hate ricotta! I eat a lot of bean dishes, so I'm not really looking for any bean/pasta combos, although I'm open if the dish is really great. Also, I tend to keep the dishes fairly low or moderate in fat, using extra virgin olive oil, rather than butter, and the cheese content low or moderate.
Well, if anyone has any ideas at all for something new, I'd really appreciate it!
