No Peas, Please

This was our 1st meal that Kyle cooked on the new stove on the boat! We were trying to find a 1-pot dish for simplicity, and while it is very easy to make, we used 2 pots on both burners to cook the dish. Kyle found the idea for the recipe in one of our many feeds online somewhere, but we modified it by adding my preferences for veggies and his preferences for spices. Even as an adult, I do not like cooked carrots, peas or asparagus*. Unfortunately, these are the types of veggies often found in pasta dishes so Kyle graciously modifies the recipes to accommodate my palate.

* I think that my dislike of these vegetables stems from childhood memories of remaining at the dinner table for hours after everyone else finished their plates.
