Easy Pasta Primavera
Pasta primavera traditionally is pasta with a creamy sauce and crisp vegetables. I love this recipe because it’s a great way to use up all of those veggies that are in your fridge. You can also throw in some chicken or shrimp for some protein too!
My pasta primavera is super easy because I cheat! I use a wheel of Boursin Cheese to make that cream sauce and it’s packed full of flavor!
Here’s my recipe.
- 1 box pasta
- Sliced fresh veggies – I used zucchini, squash, carrots, asparagus, red onion, peppers
- Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp chopped garlic
- Boursin cheese (I used the garlic and herb)
- Freshly grated parmesan
1.) Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add the pasta and cook until al dente.
2.) While the water boils and the pasta cooks, sautee the veggies in some olive oil and fresh garlic until tender.
3.) When the pasta is al dente, reserve some of the pasta water and set aside in a small pot, then drain the rest of the pasta.
4.) In a small saucepot, heat up the reserved pasta water and add a wheel of Boursin cheese, stirring until melted.
5.) Pour the veggies and drained pasta into the now empty pasta pot. Top with the melted boursin cheese, combining well. Season with salt, pepper and top with some fresh parmesan cheese.
