Recently, I blogged about how to incorporate the healthful benefits of the Mediterranean diet into your grocery shopping trips and your weekly meals. [http://www.alzcareblog.com/2012/05/14/mediterraneandietmonth/]
Here is a tasty recipe to try that focuses on the Mediterranean way of cooking and eating.
Easy Pasta Primavera
Get your full dose of vegetables in this tasty weeknight meal.
1 (16-ounce) package whole grain fusilli or penne, cooked and drained
1 cup red bell pepper, strips
1 cup green bell pepper, strips
3 cups zucchini, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Cook the pasta in boiling water until tender, but firm to the bite. In the
meantime, simmer the vegetables and garlic in the olive oil just until tender. Toss with the cooked, drained pasta and the vinegar. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
