Great as a summer bounty recipe, green beans,squash,herbs and tomatoes and other garden veggies.This was my brother's favorite pasta dish, great times and good food served on Fire Island.The crunch of fresh green beans and yummy melted cheese brings this easy veggie dish to life. Feel free to use any "in season" veggies like squash,eggplant, etc. Adding the cheese to the HOT veggies and pasta makes this dish a creamy delight. As reviewed... one chef used grilled veggies... what a great idea!!!!

I halved the recipe, but increased the quantity of mushrooms. I also cut my zucchini into half moon slices . I did add a little salt and pepper! Great recipe....I think I may increase the ratio of veggies to pasta next time just to decrease the carbs. Can't wait to try this with other combinations of veggies. Thanks for posting another winner!

I made this dish over the weekend and it was so good. So many of my favorite flavors in one dish. Instead of the green beans I used asparagus. I will make this one again.

This was really good! We used penne pasta and all ingredients listed. The melted cheese is so yummy wrapped around and thru the veggies. Great flavor and simple to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
