Pasta Primavera

1 c. zucchini, sliced
1 1/2 c. broccoli, broken into florets
1 1/2 c. snow peas
1 c. baby peas
6 stalks asparagus, sliced
1 lb. spiral noodles
4 cloves garlic, minced
olive oil
1/4 c. parsley, chopped
10 large mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1 c. heavy cream
1/3 c. fresh basil
2 egg yolks, beaten

Blanch zucchini, broccoli, snow peas, peas and asparagus in boiling, salted water for 1 to 2 minutes. Vegetables should still be crisp. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain. While pasta cooks, saute garlic, pepper and parsley in 1 tablespoon olive oil. In another large pan, saute mushrooms. Add all blanched vegetables and simmer until hot. In a pan large enough to hold pasta and vegetables, melt butter. Add cheese, cream and basil. Stir to blend. Add egg yolks. Add pasta and toss. Combine sauteed garlic mixture with vegetables and add about 1/3 of vegetables to noodles. Divide and top with remaining vegetables.

Serves 6.
