Bring 8 cups water to boil in a large pot. Cook beans, carrots or zucchini first, for 5 minutes. Add your noodles, boil another 5 minutes. Add your squash strips, cook until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Toss together in large casserole dish. Set aside.Saute onion, mushroom and butter in a skillet until onions are clear.
