chopped cauliflower from the farmer's market and carrots. minced some garlic and tossed it in with generous butter before adding the substantial veggies. minced lemon zest and chopped italian parsley. stirred them in with the veggies later on in the cooking, along with another clove of garlic, finely minced, and the juice of the lemon. and salt and black pepper.
it was quite nice served over a bed of fettuccine tossed with butter and parmesan, although probably not the best thing for a phlegmy cold.
