What’s in the Box Pasta

what's in the box pastaWhile searching for kale recipes this week, I saw several pasta recipes. All of them had a bunch of ingredients that I didn’t have available. I decided to use several of the ingredients in our harvest box and mix it with some pasta, just to see how it would come out. This is a quick recipe, and you could substitute just about any vegetable you had on hand if you need something in a hurry on a work night
