Chicken, Pasta and Veggies in a Lemon Wine Sauce

“This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. I don't make pasta very often, but whe, I do, I load it up with veggies to cut down on the guilt. I never use frozen veggies for this dish because I find they get mushy during the cooking process. It seems like a lot of ingredients, but it really is quite easy.”
