butter – Sautéing vegetables in butter adds richness and flavor, but you can also use lighter oils such as canola or avocado.

pasta – Medium-sized pasta, such as penne, fusilli, or bow-tie pasta, works best because the sauce and vegetables stick together well. Linguine is another excellent option for him.

sauce – Make a slurry with cornstarch and broth or water to thicken the sauce. Use chicken broth or vegetable broth for flavor. You can use half and half instead of fresh cream, but the sauce will be a little thinner.
