Pasta with mixed vegetables and yogurt

Pasta with mixed vegetables and yogurt |

The vegetables are cooked in butter, yogurt is poured in to create a creamy sauce then cooked pasta is added and everything is tossed together. The dish is garnished with chopped parsley and toasted nuts. So tasty. I know that Sam loved it because she finished everything in that bowl in a very short time.

The obvious question: what vegetables are ideal for a pasta dish like this? Ones that retain their shape and remain lightly crisp after pan frying. Not leafy vegetables, for sure. I chose zucchini, cauliflower and bell peppers.
