Add the whole mound of thinly sliced veggies. Let this cook without stirring for a few minutes, and it will begin to settle and lower in the pan, then just gently nudge it around, letting it continue to cook down about 5 more minutes. Add 3 tablespoons hot pasta water and 1 teaspoon salt.
Add onion and smashed garlic and saute for 2 minutes, breaking up the whole garlic with a metal spatula, just a bit, letting the oil infuse with garlic flavor.
While the pasta is cooking, heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet
Place a pot of water to boil for pasta on the stove, and cook the pasta. (do not salt) Coupons
