Penne with Vegetables Pasta Recipe



This is the perfect light summer pasta meal. Of course I get to eat this all year long in Florida but this just shouts warm weather and a great change with a garlic butter sauce. I really think it's easy to get into eating heavy all the time coming out of winter. If you are a pasta lover like our family this one is a much healthier version than the heavier sauces for your pasta cravings!
