Cheesy creamy pasta...

Sounds pretty unhealthy, right? It doesn't have to be!

Start with 2-3 tbs olive oil in a hot skillet. Throw in your favorite chopped veggies.

I used sweet onions, yellow squash, mushrooms, red pepper, and baby spinach.

Season with your desired seasonings and sauté until soft.

Meanwhile, in a small pot, mix 2 tbs flour, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tbs butter, 1 tbs lemon juice. Whisk while this thickens, then slowly add about 1 cup chicken broth. Continue to whisk over medium heat until it reaches a nice thickness. Play around with broth and flour if it is too thick or thin. Season with similar seasonings you used for the vegetables.

Boil your favorite noodles and put them in a baking dish. Toss with cooked vegetables, creamy sauce, and about 1 cup Parmesan cheese (grated, not the powdery stuff). Throw in some sliced cherry tomatoes before you cover the pan and bake at 300 for 20-30 minutes.
