    Add a cup of milk.
    The milk is going to help make the recipe really deliciously creamy. If you want to make it more decadent, you could swap out the milk for some cream. Trust us that it would be amazing but a that's a little more on the indulgence side.

    We are actually going to start by putting the lead on the pot.

    All that we are going to do is toss all of this together, put on the lid and reduce the heat to medium-low.
    We are going to let is simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the veggies and the pasta are cooked through. Be sure to stir it at least every 2 or 3 minutes though because it loves to sit in the bottom of the pot. Trust us on this one. We are trying to make it as easier- not harder.
