This meal is inspired by a man named Benny who works in the cafeteria where I work.
A long time ago they would have a pasta bar once or twice a month and Benny would prepare your lunch to order while singing lounge songs. Nothing like an Italian dish made by a crazy Mexican singing old white people songs. (Is there anyone I didn't offend there?)
Benny would let you pick from linguine or bowties, and you could have sausage or chicken, and he had about six or seven different veggies to pick from. But I'm not Benny so the folks at my house don't get it to order, they get it with whatever I feel like putting in there...and these are the veggies I felt like today.
He would start with some olive oil and garlic...
then throw all your veggies in till they got semi tender.
Then he would toss the pasta on top and stir that around a bit and add the meat.
He had different toppings to pick from too, but I prefer tomato. I've made it before with jarred spaghetti sauce but today I made my own and it was great!
And mine was made while singing along with Jimmy Buffett.
