  1. Cook pasta until tender, but still firm to the bite (al dente) about 8 minutes.
  2. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the liquid.
  3. Heat a large skillet, add olive oil.

  8. Top with tomatoes and sprinkle with Parmasan.
Additional Tips
I use whatever veggies that I have ready in the garden, so tonight we had onion, sugar peas, broccoli, and carrots. I also used left over spaghetti instead of the bowtie pasta.
