Prep time:   |  Cook time: 20 min  |  Total: 20 min



Elbow Noodles (16 oz package)

1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)

Frozen Mixed Veggies (12 oz bag)

1 cup Shredded or Grated Parmesan Cheese


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, be sure to salt water. Once boiling, add the package of noodles. Cook until just before al dente. Be careful not to overcook.

2. Once pasta is cooked, reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water. Drain and then place cooked noodles back into the same pot. Place pot back on the stove on low heat.

3. Add the butter and frozen veggies to the noodles and mix together. Heat until butter is melted and veggies are warmed through. You can add more butter if needed or a little pasta water at a time if you want the mixture to be more creamy.

4. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the past and mix everything together until cheese is melted. Serve right away and add more parmesan to the top to serve if desired.
