Clipped from an old issue of Parade magazine, this easy and healthy pasta dish truly is cooked all in one pot!

This is very similar to my recipe with the same result. I cook the pasta in 1 quart of unsalted with water (about 1" higher than the pasta). At 7 minutes, add the broccoli and asparagus. Two minutes later, mix in the rest of the veggies. Add small amounts of water only if the water drops below the line of pasta. When the pasta is done, remove the pot from the heat and let the water get absorbed. There will be no need to drain so add the half & half, Parmesan, butter, salt, and pepper. Add more water if needed to thin or add more cheese to thicken. This is truly one-pot as it does not mess up the extra bowl. The nutrients that you boil out of the veggies will be in the meal and not down the drain. The starch water from the pasta will be a thickener.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add linguine and boil 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Gradually, so that the water doesn't stop boiling, add broccoli and asparagus. Cook 2 minutes more.
  3. Gradually add the zucchini, snow peas, and green peas. Cook 3 minutes longer.
  4. During this final cooking time, put the half & half, parmesan, butter, salt, and pepper in a large serving bowl.
  5. Drain pasta and veggies well and immediately pour into the serving bowl. Toss to coat all with cream mixture. Serve at once.
