Heat the olive oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring until softened, about 1 minute. Add the pasta, 1 teaspoon salt and 3 cups water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally so the pasta doesn't clump together, 4 minutes. Stir in the asparagus and broccoli and cook, stirring, until bright green and almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the peas and cook 2 minutes longer, stirring. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the cream cheese, cream, basil, lemon zest and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt until the cream cheese is completely melted. Divide among 4 bowls. Serve with additional basil.
The success of this recipe is dependent upon the specific pasta shape suggested, so we don't recommend substitutions.
