This versatile pasta dish is so healthy and fun to make. It's quick to fix, delicious and always different. just choose the vegetables and any type of pasta (spaghetti, fusilli, fettuccine, penne) you have in stock.

I like pasta and I guess with vegetables it should taste great, though I am really used to having it with some meat, this would be good for a change.
