Stir-Fried Veggies with Pasta

We never feel like we're missing out on meat when this super supper is on the table. Not only is it a quick dinner to whip up on warm summer nights, but it is one of the meals that my husband requests most. —Tracy Holaday of Muncie, Indiana

    Delicious! I added broccoli and carrots and bean sprouts; and used tortellini for the pasta.Such a versatile recipe! Thank you, Tracy, for sharing this recipe.

    We thought this was very good. I ended up using elbow macaroni because my rotini was spoken for in another recipe later in the week, but the elbows worked fine. The only thing I would change is that next time, I will double the seasonings. The flavor seemed just a little timid. We ended up adding soy sauce to our portions. But I think the additional seasonings will make the flavor difference next time.
