"I especially like to use frozen California-blend veggies when making this dish. If you prefer, you can substitute fresh garden vegetables, but it will add a little time. Simply start them in boiling water before adding the pasta. Then add the pasta during the last 3 minutes of cooking the veggies. This makes an easy, colorful and delicious entree!"
