Easy Veggie "Pasta"

Broccoli slaw
(Serving options below)


1.  Place the broccoli slaw on a microwave safe plate.

2.  If desired, you may remove the large pieces of cabbage that will not "feel" like pasta when cooked.

3.  Steam in the microwave with a bit of water or in a microwave steamer for 4 to 5 minutes, depending on your settings.  I check on mine every 2 minutes, just to see how it is doing and to stir it around.

That's it!

So, how do I serve it?  Any way that I would normally eat pasta!  Here are my favorite topping ideas, which I always have on hand:
  • Pesto
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Grilled chicken breast (you can see that above)
  • Spicy tomato sauce (if I have extra from my lasagna recipe: http://www.vintagezest.com/2014/01/spinach-roasted-red-pepper-lasagna.html)

Then, I just stick it in the microwave again, and it's perfect!  You could always cook this in a pan, but on my lazy days, I love just having one plate to clean at the end of a very healthy dinner.
