We have a small garden in our backyard and come mid-July it yields more veggies than one family can eat in a week! I end up chopping and mixing them into almost everything. During one of those weeks last summer, I came up with this pasta dish that has lots of fresh vegetables and lots of flavor. I like to make it a day or two after we have some kind of grilled chicken. I have Mike season up and grill a few extra pieces so I can chop them up and toss them in this dish right before serving.
Prep Ahead: Save time by preparing step 2 the night before. It takes about 20 minutes to chop, saute and clean up the vegetable mixture. The next day, right before dinner, I boil the pasta and toss it all together to heat through.
