Sautéed Mixed Vegetables with Pasta

You can vary this recipe by using any number of seasonal vegetables, including cauliflower, green beans, peas, zucchini or yellow squash, even cucumber. In place of the Parmesan cheese, stir in 8 ounces of chèvre, or soft goat cheese, before adding basil and seasoning to taste. Use any one of the spiral- or shell-shaped pastas in place of the angel hair.
