Pasta with Lemon Thyme Veggies

This recipe has morphed over the years. Originally it was from Fitness Magazine as a vegetable side dish. Over time it became a pasta dish in our house. In the summer months it’s a garden meal with the zucchini and cherry tomatoes fresh from our garden… in the winter, I make do with grocery store produce.
