This is one of my family's favorite late summer meals when I have garden product! I add yellow squash to this too and use the mini bowtie pastas. Even my kids love this!

My family loved this meal! It was a little more juicy like soup than a skillet but still awesome, full of flavor.

Made this last night and the whole family loved it! Great flavor and very easy. I ended up not having any fresh tomatoes, so I drained a can of diced tomatoes and tossed those in. It still came out great.

Great recipe. My husband loved it. The only thing I did different was the cheese. I used low fat Mexican blend.

Loved this recipe although it was a little soupy. I will probably keep everything the same next time but up the bowties to 2 cups.

The seasoning in this receipe is so good and it's such a verstile dish. I used the veggie spiral pasta (that's all I had) and used carrots, corn, green beans and peas in place of the zuchini or squash, as my husband won't eat them.
