Mine has slightly few ingredients and uses less fat.

Ingredients

    2 Cups chopped Portabello Mushrooms,
    2 Cups chopped Zucchini
    1 Cup chopped Carrots
    1/2 Cup of diced Red/Yellow/Orange Sweet Peppers
    1 Cup chopped Red Onions (or shallots)
    1/2 Cup of Marscapone cheese (or 4 oz)
    1/2 Cup Italian Cheese Blend, I used the 4 Cheese Blend by Mario Batalli
    3 Cups Classico - Tomato & Basil Red Sauce
    8 oz (2 oz per person) Ronzoni Smart Taste Penne Rigate

Directions

Start by dicing up all of the veggies. I usually start by sauteeing (using a non-stick skillet and non-stick fat free cooking spray) the onions, then adding in the mushrooms, followed by the zucchini and carrots. I cook all until slightly soft but not mushy and also not caramelized.

Then add in the sauce and let the sauce warm and combine with the veggies, I cook this uncovered. Then add in the Marscapone cheese. Cook your pasta per the directions and serve in bowls. A nice side salad with fat free dressing is a nice accompaniment. Another option is to serve this sans the pasta in smaller portions with warm crusty multi-grain boule or baguette for dipping.
