Pam's Pasta Primavera with Black Truffle Butter

I have been wanting to try this recipe since I bought the truffle butter. I had been thinking I wanted to make sure that the flavor of the truffles came out so I decided to make a veloute sauce instead of a bechamel and stay away from strongly flavored veggies. Tri color pasta and bright veggies teamed with a chicken veloute sauce made the perfect dish when topped with just a hint of Gruyere cheese for a garnish. Served with "micro green" salad with a light vinagrette and a crusty Italian or french bread, it is a wonderful vegetarian dinner.
