Pasta Primavera

What an easy dish to make with only four main ingredients. Pasta Primavera can be made in a short time and it looks like you spent hours making it. Add whatever veggies you would like as they can be fresh or frozen. Make your Alfredo sauce from scratch or if you want a quick meal, buy it at the store. Although I love the taste of homemade Alfredo sauce, it is cheaper to buy at the store than to make your own. The best part of this meal was that my husband made it for me!

In a large pot cook the pasta according to the package direction and drain.

Cook your veggies until they are soft whether they are fresh or frozen.

I love the veggies that come in a bag and can be microwaved.

In a small pan over medium-low heat, cook the Alfredo sauce.

  1. I make a seafood primavera using shrimp. I parboil the carrots and broccoli. Saute the shrimp in garlic and butter (set to the side). Use a bit of heavy cream, chicken bouillon, parm cheese (to thicken) and a smidge of stock (to thin, if need be). Cook the veggies the rest of the way, then add the shrimp and pasta and all done. I love pasta dishes!
