Quick & Easy Tomato, Mushroom, Carrot, Parmesan, Garlic 'n' Herb Angel Hair Pasta

Pasta! It's what's for lunch! :)

For lunch, I decided to get a little experimental in the kitchen.  I whipped up this simple pasta from scratch and it was soooo good that I snapped a quick picture so that I could share it here on the blog.  

What you need: Angel hair pasta. Olive oil. Couple cloves of garlic, finely chopped. One roma tomato, all sliced up. A couple white mushrooms, sliced. Handful of shredded carrot. Herbs (basil, parsley) to taste. Parmesan.

(I know, I know... I didn't provide very exact measurements of ingredients.  I usually just add stuff in, estimating it by sight and add more of one ingredient if I'm craving it.)

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add angel hair.  While the pasta is cooking, add olive oil to a separate pan.  Heat.  Add tomato, mushroom, carrot, garlic, and herbs.  Let simmer so that all the flavors can blend!  When the pasta is al dente, strain.  Pour the contents of the other pan on top and stir.  Top with parmesan! 

It's pretty delicious!  Not to mention fast, easy, and cheap.
