Simple pasta -by Susan

I was inspired by a recipe of a healthy pasta dish. Its been ages since we had some good pasta.

1/2 box pasta
1/2 c mushrooms
1 yellow bell pepper
1 small onion
1/2 can cream of mushroom soup
Italian seasoning
1 tsp oil

Chop vegetables and saute the onions adding the other vegetables when the onion is done.
Boil pasta. Drain and add vegetables, soup and seasonings. Stir thoroughly and leave on heat enough to warm up the soup. Then serve.

This simple dish turned out really good. I intentionally used just enough mushroom soup to keep the dish from being dry to try to limit the fat.

I used the vegetables in the fridge, but I think most vegetables would work well here. If you want more juice, just add more soup.
