Recipe Ingredients for Athenian Pasta Primevera

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 medium zucchini, trimmed, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 Freshly ground pepper, to taste
13 1/2 ounces whole-wheat penne
1 1/2 cups baby peas, (if frozen, rinse under warm water and drain)
13 1/2 oz diced tomatoes
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, (4 ounces)
10 kalamata olives

Recipe Directions for Athenian Pasta Primevera

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Add bell pepper and zucchini to the onion. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are just beginning to soften, 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and continue cooking until fragrant, 1 minute more. Stir in wine, tomatoes and pepper; simmer until most of the wine has evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, cook penne in the boiling water according to the package directions, until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pot.

  5. Stir the reserved cooking liquid and the vegetables into the pasta along with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil, peas, olives and feta.
