    John Skrable's Note:

    Never mind the butter sauce. Whatever is your preference. If you are preparing a butter sauce, I think this is an excellent way to prepare the pasta.

      Didn't quite understand the pasta cooking method. The directions made it sound like you simply drop it and it's done. I still had to cook my angel hair pasta on a rolling boil for about 8 minutes after doing thw boil --> 15 minutes simmer --> boil thing. Decent recipe though.

      This was excellent! The method for cooking the vegetables and then adding the pasta is one that I will use since it works out so well. I used lantern shaped pasta and chopped up broccoli and fresh mushrooms for the vegetables, which I doubled. I love meatless meals and this was a perfect choice! Thanks so much for posting!!
