- 4-6 mini red & orange sweet peppers, julienned
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 cups steamed broccoli florets

Prepare the pasta according to the directions. Set aside. (Tip: It’s BEST to use day-old pasta)
In a large skillet, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic and onion for about 5 minutes. Add red and orange peppers, and saute for 5 minutes. Add steamed broccoli florets, salt, and pepper; continue to cook and stir for about 5 more minutes. Add cooked pasta & toss until sauteed vegetables are evenly distributed with the pasta. As an option, you can add grilled/sauteed chicken breast to the side or cut it up in cubes & add to your dish. Enjoy!
