Every once in a while I crave pasta and this is one of my favorite dishes. It's smooth, creamy, and delicious with the veggies added. Make some garlic bread under the broiler and Mmm mmm, it's so good!

  2. Add other vegetables into the pan and let cook until desired doneness. Add more salt at this time if desired.
  3. Sprinkle grated parm over all and add butter,letting it melt in pan. Then add cream and stir. Cheese will thicken the sauce. Add more cream or milk to the sauce if needed or to desired thickeness.
