Sounds like your question is already answered, but I agree with the adding them toward the end of cooking pasta idea. Keep it simple, no extra dishes, no extra draining.

What I usually do is cook the pasta and drain, then put the pasta back in the pan and add my sauce and frozen veggies and just reheat it a little. I just stir until the veggies no longer look frozen. Usually frozen veggies are already cooked when they're packaged, so all you really need to do is thaw them out before eating.
Kind of a stupid question probably but- if I want to add frozen broccoli/cauliflower to pasta, can I just add it in with the boiling pasta water? Or drain the pasta and then add it in - is the pasta hot enough to cook it to a safe temperature? Or do I need to cook it in a whole separate pot or bowl first?
I'm newly graduated, now living on my own off-campus and have to cook my own food (THE HORROR!! - actually, it's fun so far LOL). I don't really know anything about cooking..I've been googling a lot but I can't find an answer to this one (I was successful in finding out how long to bake chicken breast for earlier today though! haha)
