● veggies (mushrooms, green beans, onions, spinach, sweet peppers,

● 2 T. olive oil

● 2 T. butter

1. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling, salted water. If using asparagus, green beans, broccoli, the base of bok choy or chard, cut in 2-3 inch pieces. Add to boiling water for last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain.

2. Heat butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic & red pepper flakes (also onions, if using). Saute 4-5 minutes.

3. Add mushrooms and sauté until browned, 8 minutes. Add the rest of the raw vegetables (except anything leafy) and continue sauteing for another 5 minutes or so.

4. Then add the wine and leafy vegetables. Continue sauteing for 2-3 minutes. 

5. Then add the tomatoes and the cream and reduce the heat to medium, simmering for about 4 minutes. Turn to low heat, and cover to keep warm.

6. Drain pasta and add to the sauteed vegetables. Add the basil, and lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss well. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
