Sharing is caring!

Asian-Style Capellini Pasta with Vegetables takes on a new twist when capellini pasta is tossed with Trader Joe’s fresh pre-chopped vegetables and quickly stir-fried with some teriyaki sauce! This dish is so delicious, it tastes like your eating an old classic favorite, Chinese stir-fry egg noodles with vegetables, only better!  It’s homemade, ridiculously easy to make, and easy on the wallet!

 

My daughter was in the mood for some Chinese noodles with vegetables, and I thought I could make a similar version of her favorite.  But only easier!

These days, who has time to cook?

When I am out shopping, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to put dinner on the table fast!  Thanks to a sauce and a package of already chopped veggies (I found at Trader Joe’s), I only needed the capellini pasta (aka super thin pasta) to complete my dinner – and it was ready in 15 minutes. 

Now that’s Awesome!

Trader Joe’s vegetable mixes are loaded with 8 healthy vegetables, including chopped broccoli, carrots, celery, green cabbage, red cabbage, radishes, green bell pepper, and jicama.

I love this because all the veggies are already pre-chopped and ready to go!

Who has time to clean and chop all of these?  …right?!

Plus, it takes the stress out of the whole thing of preparing dinner, making my life so much easier.

 

 

 

 

4-Ingredients for Asian-Style Capellini Pasta with Vegetables:

 

 

How To Make This Dish Quick and Easy…

1.  Bring a 2-quart pot filled with water to boil.  Add the capellini pasta. Boil, stirring for only 3 minutes. Drain. Then return the pasta back into the pot and pour 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce.  Stir the pasta and sauce until well combined. Taste, and add additional sauce to your liking.

2.  Simply stir-fry the vegetables in a skillet for a few minutes with some olive oil.

3.  Then add in some teriyaki sauce (Trader Joes Soyaki) and stir-fry them for a few minutes more, just enough to give flavor to the veggies.

4.  Ladle the capellini pasta into individual plates, with the vegetables on top.  Serve immediately.

This teriyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s happens to be very good.  Because it’s made with fresh garlic, fresh ginger, and sesame seeds, plus it’s all-natural with no preservatives and no artificial colors or flavors.  πŸ™‚

It adds wonderful flavors to the vegetables and to the capellini pasta all at once.  No need to add anything else.  It’s that simple!

The outcome was amazing!  So incredibly light and satisfying.

The capellini pasta works really well in this dish.  They’re so thin and cook up so quickly with a texture similar to Asian noodles, no one will notice.  At least I didn’t think so.

A perfect vegetarian version too!  No one will ever miss the meat!

Swap out the capellini pasta for steamed rice!  It too will be amazing!

Best of all, your family is getting a dish that is loaded with these nutrient-filled vegetables that are high in vitamins A and C, along with iron and calcium.

Asian-Style Cappellini Pasta with Vegetables will pair well with a simple green salad as a side to complete dinner! 

Besides its simplicity, it’s budget-friendly!  Chinese Take-Out can be expensive (around 20 to 30 dollars for 4 servings), it’s costs less to make this meal at home and it tastes so much better! 

Best of all… with less sodium and definitely, NO MSG added – what-so-ever! 

Oh and there’s one more thing.  No need to call anyone to the table, that wonderful garlic-ginger aroma fills the house, calling everyone to the table, pronto!

My daughter and husband were very happy … the only thing missing were the chopsticks!

Enjoy!!

    What a delicious and quick meal! I love those prechopped veggies and what a great idea to keep a box on hand in the frig for a quick meal during this especially busy time of year when we are usually outdoors most of the day.
