Veggies to go with your Orange Chicken
And of course you can add your favorites, I just really love this combo!
Just cut the zucchini into 2-3 inch pieces, then cut it into 1/2 inch thick strips, these cook a bit faster so I just steamed them for a few minutes. The carrots took the longest so just let them cook until they are mostly soft. I like the zucchini and carrots to be kind of al dente and the broccoli to be cooked through so for the broccoli just steam it until it is bright green. Serve with orange chicken over rice!
Here is the recipe for the Orange Chicken, it is one of those meals that I thoroughly enjoy every time!!

This is a very basic pasta salad recipe that I grew up with.
1 bottle of Italian dressing
1 box Tricolor rotini pasta
Mini pepperoni (or full sized quartered)
1 can olives, halved
Cheddar cheese chunks
Cook the pasta as directed and let it cool. Cut Olives in half, cut small cubes of cheese, and cut pepperoni in fourths (unless you get the mini ones). Put all ingredients except the cheese in a bowl and mix it up. You can put the cheese in or just put it into a small container until right before serving so it doesn't get soggy. Let it chill in the fridge for an hour or so before serving.
