Tagliatelle Primavera

Spicy tagliatelle with bell peppers, zucchini, red onions, and thyme: I never want to hear from anyone that it’s hard to cook for a vegetarian. I know if you are a meat lover it can be annoying, but there are some amazing meat-free pasta dishes out there you can cook and this is one of them. Bell peppers, zucchini, and onions are a great combination of vegetables and with a small punch of chile make this meal delicious. You can substitute fettuccine for tagliatelle if you prefer, and make sure you don’t overcook the vegetables.
