Minestrone Pasta Bowl

1 package (16 ounces) uncooked rigatoni pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix, divided
1 large zucchini, sliced
1 large carrot, chopped
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 jar (26 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions in Professional (8-qt.)
Stockpot; drain using large Colander. Return pasta to stockpot; add 1
tablespoon of the oil and 1 teaspoon of the seasoning mix, stirring to

Meanwhile, using Ultimate Slice & Grate fitted with v-shaped blade,
slice zucchini. Chop carrot using Food Chopper. Slice mushrooms using
Egg Slicer Plus(R). Heat remaining oil in Stir-Fry Skillet over medium

using Bamboo Spatulas. Add zucchini and carrot; stir-fry 2-3 minutes or
until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add mushrooms, spaghetti sauce,
garbanzo beans and remaining seasoning mix. Cook, stirring
occasionally, 5-6 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and heated through.

Transfer pasta to Simple Additions(TM) Large Bowl. Carefully pour
sauce over pasta. Grate Parmesan cheese over pasta using Deluxe Cheese
Grater. Serve immediately.
