Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, carrot, bell pepper and squash to the water. In the last 2 to 3 minutes, add the tortellini. Drain all together and reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Place spinach in the bottom of a large serving bowl. Add tortellini and vegetable mixture. Stir and add "dollops" of goat cheese and season with black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Finish by adding lemon zest. Add pasta water, if needed, to loosen up entire mixture. Serve hot or cold.
