Pasta Primavera | 30 Minute Dinner


I've been on the search for the perfect pasta primavera ever since I had an amazing dinner a few years ago at a restaurant in Highwood. I think this is pretty close to perfect and will definitely be continuing to make this recipe! The best part is, you can really use whatever veggies that you like. This week we used the veggies we got from the Green City Farmers Market and that we grew in the our own garden!


We find it turns out the best if you steam the broccoli first. If you don't, it gets too soggy or not cooked enough. The roasting of the vegetables gives it the perfect texture for the pasta. We've made it too many times where it comes out a vegetable mush. 

The herbs de province give the dish the perfect amount of seasoning to make it absolutely perfect!
