Peanut and Vegetable Linguine

 

More and more recipes are for meatless Monday and for vegetarian meals.  In the last few months vegetarian recipes are common at our mealtimes.  I have 3 vegetarian cookbooks that give me new ideas.  The food communities are an abundance source of recipes, menus and ideas.   Peanut and Vegetable Linguine was a new recipe to try for our meatless Monday.

The Peanut and Vegetable Linguine was our dinner this last Monday.  It turned out to be a winner.  I followed the recipe exactly. However, as many of you find, a new recipe is created because you do not have the right ingredients.  This recipe was changed from an oriental flair to a more Mediterranean cuisine.

Pasta is thought to be of Mediterranean cuisine as well as fresh vegetables and nuts.  This recipe uses whole grain linguine, a variety of vegetables sautéed in olive oil, topped off with black olives and roasted peanuts.  Peanuts are a good source of vitamin B biotin, copper, manganese and vitamin E as well as providing the heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.  As with all healthy diets, give consideration to the portion size and total calories.
