Presque bay primavera √

Serves 2.

Note: Amounts of each ingredient are highly adjustable, depending on what you have on hand. From Kim Ode.

• 2 tbsp. olive oil

• 1/2 medium onion, sliced thin

• 6 small sweet peppers, sliced in thin rings

• 2 garlic cloves, sliced thin

• Several mushrooms, sliced thin

• 4 slices of deli ham, or other meat, sliced into thin strips

• Broccoli cut into small florets, about 1 c.

• 1/4 c. white wine or water

• 1 1/2 c. pasta, preferably a smaller shape

• 4 c. water

• Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until it starts to soften. Nudge onions to one side to make room for the peppers, and continue cooking until the onion takes on a golden sheen. Add the garlic to the onion, and make room for the mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms are soft.

Using a slotted spoon, lift all the vegetables from the pan into a bowl, keeping any remaining oil in the pan.

Add ham to the pan, and sauté for several minutes until the slivers sear just a bit. Add ham to vegetables in bowl.
