2. Add 1.5 tbsp of olive oil in cooking or saute pan.

3. Chop up 1/2 medium celery stalk (putting too much will alter the flavor)

4. Add garlic, onions, and shallots to pan and saute medium for about 4 - 5 minutes or until tender
*add celery approx 3 - 4 minutes
add italian seasoning

5. (you can do this step before or while other ingredients are cooking) cut into small slices 2/3 yellow squash and also 2/3 zucchini.

6. After 4-5 minutes, add the squash and zucchini

7. Add mushrooms

8. Add baby spinach - Sautee to desired tenderness

9. Drain canned black beans and add 1/2 can to vegetables

10. Immediately add Alfredo sauce.

Cook until beans and Alfredo sauce are fully heated.
