Sauté the Vegetables: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped vegetables and sauté until they are tender but still crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs like Italian seasoning or basil.

Combine Pasta and Vegetables: Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the sautéed vegetables. Toss everything together gently until the pasta and vegetables are well combined.

Finish with a Light Sauce: To keep the dish light, use a light sauce made with a splash of pasta water, lemon juice, and a touch of grated Parmesan cheese. Toss everything together until the pasta is evenly coated with the sauce.
