Cook once, eat 8 times! That is how I live. Whether or not this recipe makes 8 servings for you, I cannot promise, but what I do promise is that it tastes great! By throwing the vegetables into the water with the pasta in the last few minutes of cooking, you can save yourself from having to cook them separately and using another dish.
