This was a delicious dinner last evening. What a welcome break from all of the meat meals that we have been having recently. Our local store doesn't carry Roma's but a regular tomato worked well enough. Mushrooms were added as I had some in the fridge that were needing to be used and this was very good with them added. Yummy :D

Directions

  1. Place water on to boil for pasta -- add a tsp of olive oil to keep it from sticking. Once the water reaches a boil, add pasta. Cook according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, cook carrot in a small amount of boiling water for 1 minute. Add broccoli and peas; cook 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Saute peppers in 3 tbsp olive oil for 1 minute. Add asparagus tips and zucchin, and saute for 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat; add reserved carrot mixture and tomato. Set aside.
  4. Drain pasta. Place in a serving dish. Add vegetable mixture, parmesan cheese, and remaining ingredients. Toss gently.
