Just made this although, I am on a diet and changed a few major things. i added bacon bits because my family doesn't consider it a meal without some sort of meat. I didn't use any butter. I just sprayed pam in the pan for the saute part. I also used half the pasta. I didn't have angel hair so I used spaghetti. I also didn't have squash and used artichoke hearts instead. Lots of my veggies were canned or frozen to empty the pantry and fridge. The tomatoes were fresh though and this was excellent! I might add less water next time. Thanks for such a versatile recipe.

This was great, will do again and keep same amounts of veggies but to a half-pound angel hair. Freshly grated Parmesan served at table alongside home-made garlic bread. Oh yeah, to keep peace in the family had to omit mushrooms. Yum. Made for New Kids on the Block, a tag game.
