This is my Mom's recipe. Very easy, very good. I had a successful mail-order business years ago packaging the spices, pasta, cheese and recipe. The veggie measurements are "guesstimates" as I don't usually measure! I also vary the veggies according to what I have on hand - the only thing I've ever used that didn't work was beets.This also freezes well.
