Baked Veggie Alfredo

This is one of those throw whatever you have on hand into the pot and VIOLA! You have dinner ready. It turned out really yummy and everyone enjoyed it. Feel free to make it to your family's likes. Enjoy!!

1 16 oz bag pasta
1 jar alfredo sauce
1 fresh zucchini chopped up
2 ribs of celery, chopped up
1/2 C frozen peas and carrots
3 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 C breadcrumbs
(i always have leftover bread in the freezer. put it in a food processor and season to taste. you will always have breadcrumbs on hand if you do this)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook and drain the pasta until almost done. About 8 minutes (depending on the type of pasta you are using.
Cook the peas and carrots with the pasta, drain. Add the celery, zucchini and toss lightly in alfredo sauce. Put in lightly greased 9X13 pan and top with breadcrumbs and bacon pieces. I also used the little bit of bacon grease as a flavoring on the top to help brown and crisp up the bread crumbs-this is of course optional.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!

We served this with a broccoli slaw. I found a bag of the broccoli slaw at the store today. I dressed it with salsa, 1/2 a tomato, chopped up and ranch dressing to taste. This was a yummy dinner and for the most part, healthy. Hope you enjoy it!
