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.
