Veggie Pasta

This recipe was created by my mom and me. We pretty much just added any vegetables we could find to our pasta, and created a wonderfully yummy dish! Any vegetables could easily be substituted in or out of this recipe. We've been waiting to be able to make a meal like this because my dad refuses to eat almost any vegetable. He likes meat and potatoes, so this may be described as a "girly" dish, but the guys would love it if they tried it! Enjoy!

  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • 8 oz package of linguine
