Yummy and easy pasta dish. Leftovers are great, but it does not freeze well. Whole family enjoys the dish.

My husband and DD love pasta; I, however, do not, but must eat starch at every meal because of health issues. This satisfies the starch issue, and also the husband and DD with respect to pasta. I DID NOT add the sauce to the water, but added it later after the pasta was drained and the vegetables done. Thanks for the recipe. It is a keeper!! Yolanda D.
