  • 8-oz. bow tie pasta

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (14-oz.) package frozen vegetable blend, thawed (see Note)

Note: Mr. Food Test Kitchen used a California blend of carrots, cauliflower and broccoli, but you can use whatever veggies your family likes. 


In a large pot cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside. In the same pot, melt butter over medium-low heat, add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add half and half, ricotta and parmesan cheeses, salt and pepper, stir until creamy and hot.  Add the mozzarella cheese and vegetables and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in bow ties and cook until heated through.
