      What a delicious pasta dish! I had a variety of partial packages of pasta in the pantry (penne, rigatoni, spaghetti) so just used a combination of those, otherwise made just as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Loved all the veggies in this - thanks for posting the recipe!

      Yum! I really enjoyed this a lot with all of the great veggies. Tasted very light. I made it as directed, other than halving the recipe. I had 2 more meals from this and played with the seasonings a bit. I tried some Italian seasoning and then added some crushed red pepper to change the taste the 3rd time, lol. This is a good recipe to clean out the refrigerator with little bits of veggies that are left. Thanks breezermom for some nice meals. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
