4 cups (1 L) broccoli florets
4 cups (1 L) cauliflower florets
1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
2 onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups (750 mL) sliced mushrooms

1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
1 red bell pepper, cut in strips
1/2 cup (125 mL) freshly grated Canadian Parmesan cheese

Preparation

In large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to package directions until almost tender. Add broccoli and cauliflower; cook until pasta is al dente. Drain well.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick wok or skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onions, stirring often, until tender. Add garlic, mushrooms; cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 min of until mushrooms are browned and tender. Sprinkle evenly with flour; cook, stirring, for 1 min.

Stir in milk, salt, pepper and red bell pepper; bring to boil, stirring constantly. Stir in pasta mixture and Canadian Parmesan; cook, stirring, for 2 min or until heated through and coated in sauce. Stir in fresh basil.

Tips

For the Adventurous: Add julienne strips of carrots, fennel, snow peas, celery or green beans along with the mushrooms.

Healthy Eating Tip: Broccoli, cauliflower and sweet red peppers are all excellent sources of Vitamin C and folate. Vitamin C is an important factor in the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. One red pepper has more Vitamin C than 3 medium oranges.
