Pasta Primavera

I love this pasta! And it is so great for all the veggies I have right now laying around!

Ingredients:
12oz Package thin Spaghetti
2 C Sliced yellow Squash; or 1 small zucchini*
1 Medium Red/Green Bell Pepper
1 large Carrot, sliced into strips
8oz Broccoli-chopped
1/2 C sliced onion
1/2 lb Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 C grated Parmesan Cheese
3 1/2 oz Package Pepperoni Slices
2 tsp. Fresh Basil leaves
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1 Tbl Olive oil
3 cloves Garlic
3 Tbl Flour
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Cup low-sodium Chicken Broth

*You can really add as many veggies as you’d like or as less as you like

Instructions:
1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
2. While water is heating, heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat
3. Add onion and cook for about 6-7 minutes; then add the garlic and cook another minute. Add tomatoes and cook until slightly bursting, about 5 minutes.
4. Whisk together the milk and chicken broth, parmesan and the flour and add to the vegetables. Bring to a boil and then let simmer until it thickens. It will take about 2-3 minutes.

6. Drain pasta and vegetables, and add the warm sauce to the pasta mixture.
7. Toss gently, and sprinkle leftover parmesan, and also the fresh basil to garnish.
