Penne Pesto Pasta with Veggies

Here we go with another great way to bring the taste of spring to your table!


1/4 - 1/2 cup pesto
1 lb penne
Parmesan cheese to taste
Any kind of veggies you want! (I used asparagus, broccoli, zucchini & tomatoes)

Prepare pasta per instructions on package - basically boil til al dente, which means "to the teeth" in Italian.

Steam veggies,except tomatoes, until they are slightly tender. Don't let them get mushy!

Add pesto to hot, strained pasta and mix thoroughly.

Add veggies, including tomatoes, mix again and serve. Top with Parmesan cheese to taste.

Great for summer meals and can be served cold!!!
