Our pasta recipes are prepared in what many people would consider a non-traditional quick method.  We prepare the veggies and sauce in either a large covered ceramic dish in our microwave oven or in a wok.  If cooking in a wok, stir fry the veggies in a little water at 375 degrees F. and reduce the heat to simmer when the sauce is added.

Place the water in the pasta pot and heat to boiling.

Wash and peel the Carrots and the Onions. Cut Carrots into thin slices. Cut Onions in half. Then slice halves into thin half circles. Pre-cook the Carrots and Onion slices in a wok or in a large ceramic covered dish in a microwave oven for approximately 5 minutes or until onions start to become semi-translucent. Then add the frozen vegetables and heat until everything is tender.

Clean and peel Garlic Cloves. Remove and discard stems from Chipotle Peppers. Place all Sauce Ingredients in a blender container, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the sauce becomes smooth. Set aside.

While the veggies and sauce are cooking, cook the pasta.  We cook our pasta on the stove top either in a regular pot or in a pasta pot.  When cooking pasta in a conventional pot on the stove top, we often found that the pasta would stick to the bottom of the pot.  Then we would pour the boiling water and cooked pasta into a colander to drain off the water.  With the pasta pot, the pasta never sticks to the bottom of the pot, and when it's cooked, all that is necessary is to lift out the inner pot and the water drains out.  Do not cook the pasta with the lid on the pot or the water will boil out between the inner and outer pot.  When cooking spaghetti in the pasta pot, be sure to stir the pasta when it begins to soften, in order to make sure that none is sticking through the holes of the inner pot.

Combine the Sauce and the Vegetables and cook until sauce thickens, either in the microwave oven or in the wok.

Finally add the cooked Pasta to the Sauce and Vegetable combination. Mix together and serve.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-31)
