Substitute the penne with any pasta of your choice. Add veggies according to your taste. Combine in minimal olive oil and italian seasoning, and some fresh basil leaves. I love basil leaves in my pasta or Thai food. This simple herb transforms an entire dish with its amazing flavor and fragrance. Watch the wonders on your taste buds!

A colorful ensemble!
