This is a good blue print recipe-- I ended up making quite a bit of changes to make it a bit more flavorful. The vegetables added flavor, but they needed some spices to punch it up. I ended up adding a bit of chili powder and oregano and used sugar snap peas (I couldn't find the fresh shelled peas). I also served it with feta cheese instead of the parmesan. I will definitely make this again, but will include some sauteed onions and fresh lemon. I'll also save a bit of the olive oil and sautee some garlic with it to toss the finish product in. When I made it, the pasta seemed like it needed something to hold it all together. Some fresh parsley or basil on top would also be yummy.
