Cooking pasta with vegetables in a creamy sauce:

Step 1: prepare bell peppers.

We rinse the bell pepper under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, remove the tail and seeds. After that, cut the vegetable lengthwise into two halves and then cut each part into strips. Shredded component is transferred to a clean plate.

Step 2: prepare the carrots.

With a knife, peel the carrots and rinse under running water. We spread the vegetable on a cutting board and cut into thin strips. The crushed component is placed in a free plate.

Step 3: prepare the onion.

Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. On a cutting board we cut the component into two halves and after each part we grind in half rings. The prepared onions are transferred to a free plate.

Step 4: prepare the zucchini.

We wash the zucchini under running water and put it on a cutting board. With a knife, remove the edges, and grind the vegetable with straws. Transfer the prepared zucchini to a clean plate.

Step 5: Cook the Pasta

We fill half the pan with ordinary cold water and put the container on medium heat. When the liquid boils, salt it, mix everything well with a tablespoon and make the fire less than average. Gently spread the pasta into the pan and wait for the water to boil again. After that, we time about 10-15 minutes and cook the dough product. Attention: Be sure to familiarize yourself with the method of cooking pasta, which is indicated on the package, as cooking time may vary. After the allotted time, turn off the burner and pour a little liquid into the cup with a scoop (this broth is still useful to us). Holding the pan with kitchen tacks, drain the water with the component directly into the sink through a colander. We are waiting for all the liquid to drain. After that, we transfer the pasta back to the pan and add the olive oil here. Close the container tightly with a lid and shake everything several times so that the butter is evenly distributed over the pasta and they do not stick together while we cook the vegetables.

Step 6: prepare the butter.

Spread the butter on a cutting board and cut into small pieces. Shredded component is transferred to a clean saucer. Attention: the amount of oil is determined "by eye", as this is a matter of taste.

Step 7: prepare the cream cheese.

Put the cream cheese on a cutting board and chop finely with a knife. We shift the crushed component in a saucer with butter. Attention: these components can not be added to the dish, just in this embodiment, the taste will be more saturated.

Step 8: prepare pasta with vegetables in a creamy sauce.

Pour a little vegetable oil into the pan and put the container on medium heat. When the oil warms up well, make the fire less than average and put the chopped carrots and bell pepper into the pan. From time to time, stirring with a wooden spatula, lightly fry the vegetables.

After that, add the onions in half rings in the pan, again mix everything and continue to fry everything. When the onion becomes slightly soft, put the zucchini straw to it, mix everything with a spatula and pour into the vegetables a couple of tablespoons of the liquid that remained after cooking the pasta. To taste, salt and pepper the component and give them the opportunity to stew.

As soon as the vegetables are soft and practically reach the stage of readiness, pour the cream into the pan. If desired, add slices of butter and cheese here, mix everything well with a wooden spatula and bring the mixture to a boil.
After that, turn off the burner, and transfer the vegetables in a creamy sauce to a pan with pasta. Again, mix everything with improvised inventory and can serve it to the dinner table.

Step 9: serve the pasta with vegetables in a creamy sauce.

We shift the pasta with vegetables in a creamy sauce to a special dish and hurry to treat the household (until this gourmet Italian lunch has cooled down). By the way, in Italy, real gourmets eat pasta with sauce not only with a fork, but also with a spoon. Paste pasta with a side dish on a fork, bring it to the mouth, and hold a spoon under the fork so that the sauce does not drip on the table. A glass of red dry wine can complement the taste of the dish.
Good appetite!
