"Rainbow" Veggie Pasta

This is a recipe that I came up with all on my own.  It is a good way to use up vegetables that you have in your fridge that need to be used.  It would be easy to substitute things in place of what I listed.  I have made variation of this a couple times now and we all seem to love it every time!

"RAINBOW" Veggie Pasta
*Serves 8 - approx. 332 cal per serving

3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Med Red Onion - finely chopped
3 Carrots - chopped
1 can Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans) - drained and rinsed
1 Lrg Zucchini - chopped
Splash of Worcestershire Sauce
2 cups Grape Tomatoes - sliced
2 cups Kale - chopped
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Kosher Salt
2 tsp Black Pepper
2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 Cup Water

1. Put a pot of water on to boil for the pasta, cook pasta according to box instructions.
2. Add 2 Tbsp Olive Oil to skillet over medium heat.

3. Once oil is shimmering, add onions, carrots and chick peas along with 1 tsp of Kosher salt to skillet and saute until the onions are translucent.
4. Add Zucchini and a splash of Worcestershire Sauce to skillet and cook an additional 5-7 minutes.
5. Add kale, tomatoes, all the remaining seasonings and 1/2 cup water to the skillet, cover and cook another 5 minutes.
6. Remove vegetable mixture to a large bowl, add pasta to the bowl and the last Tbsp of oil to the bowl and mix all together.  If it looks really dry you can a little pasta water to the bowl and stir.
*Salt/Pepper to taste if you think it needs more!
