Prepare pasta in boiling water and keep to the side. Prepare asparagus and green beans and keep to the side.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shrimp and toss together in pan. Add squash, zucchini and red peppers and toss all together, sautéing for just under a minute. Add white wine and sauté for approximately 1 minute. Add pasta and remaining ingredients (including the asparagus and green beans) and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Pasta is ready when the spinach begins to wilt.

Serve in large bowl or individual pasta dishes and garnish with fresh Parmegiano Reggiano cheese.
