Colorful Vegetarian Linguine Recipe

Looking for a tasty alternative to meat-and-potatoes meals? Try this colorful pasta dish, which is the brainchild of my oldest son. It's a stick-to-the-ribs supper that takes advantage of fresh mushrooms, zucchini and other vegetables as well as basil and provolone cheese.—Jane Bone, Cape Coral, Florida

"Ditto on the previous--been making this since it came out in the magazine. It is a definite family favorite. We like smoky provolone in it best and the fresh basil is worth the extra trouble. I would triple it if it fit in the skillet! Leftovers are good but there are rarely any left. We use a small amount of sweet onion chopped and cooked with the vegetables in place of the green onion (just personal preference). This is our favorite vegetarian recipe and we aren't vegetarians."
