Lemon cream pasta with veggies

This is a little something I put together tonight for dinner.  We have been on vacation and just needed a good home cooked dinner with some vegetables.  So served up with a salad and bread this really hit the spot.

1# asparagus, cut into pieces about 2" long
2 boneless chicken tenders, cubed
1 small zucchini, sliced
3 oz. cream cheese
1 c. half and half
1 c. parmesan cheese
1/4 t. nutmeg
zest of one lemon
juice from one lemon
cooked pasta of your choice-I used spaghetti noodles

Put about 2 T. olive oil in a skillet.  Add zucchini and asparagus and chicken.  Cook until the chicken is no longer pink.  Add zest and lemon juice.  Add cream cheese and cook over medium heat.  As cream cheese "melts" stir in half and half and parmesan cheese.  Cook over medium low heat.  Combine with cooked pasta.
