uncooked penne pasta
fresh broccoli florets
fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 (8 ounce) package
sliced fresh mushrooms

It was good but the portions were off. I had to add extra milk to make enough sauce for all the pasta, For extra flavor I added a half a can of chicken stock and let it cook down a little. But I enjoyed it.
