    Default Vegetable to go with pasta?

    Tonight we are going to have Chicken Marsala and I would like to have
    a vegetable to go with it. I have no idea of which one would
    compliment such a dish. I would appreciate any suggestions you can
    offer.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I would like mild tasting green vegetables like French beans, Lima beans
    or possibly small peas with that. I also like asparagus with plain lemon
    and a sprinkling of parmesan (but I like asparagus with practically
    everything!)

    I vote for asparagus, too. By the way, James, though I prefer it fresh,
    there is a new "steamer bag" of mixed vegetables that has nice chunks of
    asparagus in it, I used it for stir fry last night. I forget the brand, but
    it has some yellow squash, french green beans and bits of pepper, too.
    Pretty good.

    Thanks, that sounds interesting and I'll have to look for it unless it
    includes broccoli :-)

    I have been using some of the "steamer bags" of veggies. I usually use
    fresh veggies, but these steamer bags are as close to fresh as I have seen.
    There are a large variety of veggies available that way, and most are
    "plain" veggies without seasoning (those are the ones I buy). They are
    expensive, but I get several meals out of one bag because I am only cooking
    for one. I have both Birds Eye and Steam Select brands in the freezer. I
    have grown especially fond of shelled edamame (soybeans) from Steam Select,
    and that is something that I never see in the fresh produce.

    I'd make a nice antipasto salad, quick and easy. I like lettuce, cherry
    tomatoes, artichoke hearts, black olives, pepproncini, fresh mozzarella
    balls (ovellini), salami and parmesan. A balsamic vinaigrette is the best
    dressing.

    Grilled Zucchini, Red Onion & Japanese eggplant. lightly dressed with
    balsamic.

    To hold the onion slices together insert a toothpick or a trussing needle.

    Sounds great -- good tasting *and* healthy (as long as the high-fat items
    are limited). What a nice combo!

    I disagree. I think that would be a bit overpowering in flavors and
    compete with the marsala. I'd let that be the shining star and have
    simple, elegant veggies to go with it. Haricot vertes perhaps?

    We did it 2 years ago for mother's day. Big hit. I just went real easy on
    the dressing. I like a touch of dressing, I cannot stand it swimming in it.

    I saw the asparagus mixture today, made by BirdsEye. There are a number
    of other blends some of which do include broccoli. I haven't tried any
    of them yet.

    The BirdsEye one has a pretty fresh flavor. I think it's a little expensive
    for the amount you get, but it's worth it to have what I like on hand.
