I got the original recipe from the National Honey Board, but I found that I wanted a little more 'pazazz' in the pasta salad, so I added red hot pepper flakes. The next time I added bacon, the next time spicy sausage... I love the versatility
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
2 cloves garlic -- minced
2 tomatoes -- seeded and diced
3/4 cup julienne zucchini
1/2 cup julienne carrots
1 jar marinated artichoke hearts, halve the hearts
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3/4 teaspoon dried basil -- crushed
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano -- crushed
salt and pepper -- to taste
6 ounces linguine pasta -- cooked
Grated parmesan or asiago cheese
Meat Lover's Option
Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped or sliced pepperoni, bacon, andouille sausage or any other protein matter of your choice.
DIRECTIONS
Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add broccoli and garlic and stir-fry 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add tomatoes, zucchini, carrot, honey, lemon juice, lemon peel and seasonings. Simmer about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring gently. Toss with noodles; cool.
