  • 1/2 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow squash, diced
  • 1/2 cup thin asparagus tips and stalks, sliced in 1-inch pieces

Directions

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until just tender, about 12 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and quickly saute the vegetables until just tender. Do not overcook. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
