I made this recipe really fast by using whatever pasta we had in the house
and using a frozen mixture of vegetables instead of fresh.  Then I put it
in a ziplock bag and tossed it into the cooler for a car trip.  It was a
great accompaniment to sandwiches made with fatfree refried beans,
tomatoes, and onions.
