Creamy Pasta Primavera

Creamy Pasta Primavera is a delicious one pot dinner!  So easy to make.  It only takes 30 minutes to prepare.  You could easily make this gluten free by substituting the noodle.  I love the included veggies too!  If you make it 1/3 block reduced fat cream cheese to lessen the calories a bit, it is 8 points plus on Weight Watchers.
