Summer Vegetable Penne


2 cups uncooked penne pasta
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 small yellow summer squash, sliced
1 small zucchini, sliced
1/2 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the onion, summer squash, zucchini, mushrooms, and garlic in butter until tender. In a bowl, whisk the flour, seasonings, and cream until smooth; add to skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Drain pasta and add to vegetable mixture. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Serves 6.

Notes: I added some chopped tomatoes and chicken to the recipe, and it still tasted good. Could have used more seasoning. I found this recipe online somewhere a couple of years ago, but I didn't keep the link and I don't remember where I found it. I changed the name from Vegetarian Penne since I added chicken. I also thought that "Summer Vegetable" sounded more appetizing than "Vegetarian."
