Creamy Vegetable Pasta

I made this after we had been out of town for 11 days.  We were desperate for some vegetables and thus this recipe was born.

1 bow tie pasta
3 cups chicken broth
2 8oz pkg chive and onion cream cheese
1 red pepper (diced)
1 large zucchini (diced)
1 head of broccoli (chopped)
1 cup tomatoes (diced)
1 cup mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup onion (chopped)
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the pasta according to directions. Saute the the onions for 2 minutes.  Add the red pepper, zucchini and broccoli and saute for 3 more minutes.  Stir in the mushrooms and saute for 2 more minutes.  Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer.  Stir in the chive and onion cream cheese until melted.  Add the pasta and tomatoes to the mixture and serve.
