Easy Recipe (Pasta Primavera) With Neat Tip

. at . 4 comments




I found a way to make my new favorite summer dish (Pasta Primavera) a tich neater. 

Here’s my basic recipe.

  1. Steam frozen or fresh veggies (broccoli, carrots, zucchini, peas, corn).
  2. Sauté onion, mushrooms, and peppers. I cook whatever is on hand until I have about 3 cups of steamed and sautéed veggies.
  3. Make a white sauce while the veggies are cooking. I make 2 cups. This sauce is equally good with powdered milk, cow’s milk, almond milk, or soy milk.
  4. Cook 1 lb. of linguine. Drain.
  5. Put all the veggies and white sauce into the noodles.
  6. Fold in 1-2 cups of washed and roughly chopped spinach.
  7. Add handful of sliced cherry tomatoes.

Okay, here’s the neat tip: Before I pour the dry noodles into a pot of boiling water, I break the noodles in half inside the package.

Maybe y’all already knew this one. I just discovered it last week while whipping up this dish (again). Doing it this way ensured that I didn’t drop even one noodle.Works-for-me.

    I have heard of this tip & another. You can cook your veggies in with the pasta. Cook the pasta until almost done, drop in veggies & cook until just done. I saw Rachel Ray do this on 30 minute cooking.
