One Pot Loaded Veggie Pasta is simple to prepare and loaded with summer’s bounty. This one pot meal is the perfect dish to prepare after a trip to the Farmer’s Market.
This hearty meal is so full of flavor. You definitely won’t miss the meat.
I just love a one pot meal. The fewer dishes I have to wash, the better. This pasta recipe is a keeper.
