For pasta, you have plenty of choices, you can sautee nearly any veggie in some olive oil. Throw a chicken breast on the top for some added protein. The 2 best pasta brands are De Cecco and Barrilla. These are the two favorites among Italians, they know the real deal.
Also, for some kick, add some crushed red pepper, or peperoncino too. Spices are your friend, just remember that more spice does not make it better. You are the maestro, the food is your orchestra, you run the show, know what I mean ?
