  • While penne is cooking, melt butter in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add green beans, asparagus, and carrot and cook for 3 minutes. Add zucchini, mushrooms, and 3/4 of the chopped tomato; cook and stir until veggies are bright, 4 to 5 minutes. Add spinach and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes.

  • Sprinkle salad dressing mix over veggies and gradually add cream, stirring until combined. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened to desired consistency, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked penne and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; toss to combine.

  • Plate pasta. Top each serving with remaining Parmesan, remaining tomato, a dash of lemon juice, and pepper.
