Pasta with Flavorful Veggies

Italian-seasoned veggies are served over pasta and topped with two types of cheese in this fast meal from Rachel Schmeckenbecher of Whitehall, Pennsylvania. She writes, “It's so quick to prepare and so flavorful, but low-fat!”

    I made this for a luncheon and I added mushrooms to it. I served the cheese separate and let people add what they wanted. It was a big hit and I will definitely make it again.

    I have made this recipe over a handful of times since I came across it in the Taste Of Home Farmers Market edition. It is fast, and delicious and fairly healthy! The only thing I have changed about this recipe is that I use a zucchini and a yellow summer squash instead of 2 zucchini. Perfect!
