12 oz - 1 lb penne, linguini, spaghetti, or pasta of your choice

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or deep skillet, over medium low heat, saute the onions in several tbsp. of good olive oil. Add the garlic and swirl for a minute or two until fragrant. 

Add hard veggies - like broccoli, carrots, onions etc. Saute for a few minutes more. Add softer veggies, like peas, zucchini, etc. 

Splash a bit of white wine, broth (veg. or chicken) or the liquid from the pasta pot onto the veggies. Cover with a lid and cook over low heat for about 3-4 minutes, until tender. Turn heat to medium and stir to reduce liquid.

Add tomatoes for summer version, or cream sauce for spring version. Cook a few minutes more, stirring everything together.
