Very nice recipe. We enjoyed all the fresh vegetables with the pasta. I found that the mixture didn't really become a sauce for me but, nevertheless it was still a good mixture. If you want it more saucy you could add tomato &/or cream cheese or yogurt to the vegy mixture. I cut the recipe in 1/2 & found it was plenty for 4 side-dishes. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This was absolutely delicious. I used frozen tortellini (wasn't sure from recipe if I was supposed to but it was all I could find) and it was fine. I only used 1 T olive oil as I don't like a really strong olive oil flavor, and IMHO 1 T was just right. Otherwise made as written with a few mushrooms near their end thrown in with. Thank you so much for posting this healthful, GORGEOUS recipe! It is a keeper for sure! Also--if you are tempted to add garlic to this, don't. In Rome I had a lot of amazing dishes that used salt and olive oil for flavor instead of garlic, and this tasted lots like those. It is a different approach to Italian cooking than most of us are used to, but it is sooooo yummy!
