This veggie-packed pasta is a great way to show-off the season’s best from the farmer’s market. Other vegetables that would work well in this recipe include: diced eggplant, sliced zucchini or yellow squash, halved cherry tomatoes, shelled edamame and fire-roasted corn.


Step 1

Bring salted water to boil in steam-jacketed kettle or large stockpot on stovetop. Add pasta; cook as directed on package.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oil in large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook 8-10 min. or until edges begin to brown. Increase heat to high.

Step 3

Add carrots and cauliflower; cook 4-5 min. or until tender-crisp. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Add pasta; toss to combine with vegetables. Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese before serving.
