Fresh veggies are wonderful, but make this easy pasta primavera year round with frozen and/or fresh! So versatile. Adding a protein is EZ PZ!

Primavera Pasta

Pasta primavera! It literally means in Italian 'Springtime'! And, this pasta dish is like tasting Spring and Summer.

Pasta Primavera Recipe

This recipe for pasta primavera is about as easy as you get. It's all completed in about 30 minutes and is a winner!

Spicy Pasta Primavera

Now you can make this dish as spicy as you want. All you'll need to do is add some red chili flakes or your favorite hot sauce. The great thing about this dish is that each person can stylize to their own palate in the spice department. So, put some hot sauce and red chili flakes on the table when serving this dish.

What is in Pasta Primavera

This dish is basically two things. Pasta and fresh vegetables. The fresh vegetables can be your choice. Use up things in your refrigerator crisper, odds and ends. It's a great recipe to clean out the refrig.

Vegetarian Pasta Primavera

This recipe is basically vegetarian. Well, for those who eat cheese. Or you can omit the real cheese and use a cheese substitute. My goodness, when I'm eating pasta, I want the real thing. Real cheese!

Fettucine Pasta Primavera

Any type of pasta will work with this recipe. I chose spaghetti. But, you could use fettucine, linguine, penne pasta, rigatoni. The thing about a long noodle pasta is that you want to ensure that you have the cooking pan large enough in diameter in order to accommodate the longer pasta. And, you'll need to spend some time gently swishing and separating the strands as it's cooking in the liquid. Less swishing and separating is needed with other types of pasta.

Pasta Primavera Chicken

It's perfectly fine to add a protein to this primavera. It's again, your choice! That's the great thing about food. No hard and fast rules. It's all up to you and your palate. Chicken. Shrimp. Scallops. Slices of steak. Veal. Salmon. And, more. Just add it if you want it.

Easy Pasta Primavera Frozen Vegetables

If you can't get your hands on fresh vegetables, then frozen veggies are the next best thing. Be sure to get veggies that aren't drenched in sauces. Simply veggies. You know what you like. Maybe it's broccoli spears, cauliflower, peas, carrots, green beans, etc. And, there's always fresh tomatoes!

Best Pasta Primavera Recipe

So, I think this is one of those very best and easy recipes for a refreshing and tasty dish. Serve it year-round. And, it's one of those pasta dishes that can be served at room temperature or even like a chilled pasta salad. Sooooooooo many opportunities to show off your culinary prowess!
