Next add the spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms to the vegetables, season with the seasoned salt. Cook until the spinach is wilted.

Strain the pasta reserving a cup of pasta water in case you need it, I left the pasta in the strainer and used the pasta pot for the next step

Add the butter and flour to the pot making a rogue, add the wine and broth I used chicken broth, if making vegetarian use vegetable stock, whisk until bubbly and a nice sauce is formed, add the Parmesan cheese, the pasta and cooked vegetables to the sauce, season with pepper if needed, mix together and serve.
