Pasta Primavera

Pasta Primavera - a tried and true dinner recipe! Delicious pasta full of sausage, and vegetables like zucchini, squash, and tomatoes. DELICIOUS!

Hey everyone! Kellyn here, with another Tried and True Pasta dish that you’re sure to love. You can find several pasta recipes here on Lil Luna and NONE of them disappoint. This one is no different! With so many great, fresh, ingredients, this pasta explodes with flavor. Because we used this as a family meal, we decided to halve some of the ingredients. We didn’t want the kids (ok, ME) freaking out over all the vegetables. They still got a good healthy dose of veggies without having the “I hate vegetables” fight. It tasted delicious and everyone agreed! I think you will too.

TRIED & TRUE FINDINGS:

  • DIFFICULTY: simple
  • HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 12
  • ANY CHANGES MADE (from the original recipe): We wanted the kids to appreciate this meal, so we made a few changes… Used rotini instead of farfalle, used pork sausage instead of hot turkey sausage, halved the amounts of the following ingredients: zucchini, squash, tomatoes, bell pepper, basil leaves, parm cheese. No red pepper flakes and used onion flakes instead of chopped onion.
  • ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: Next time I’m adding the red pepper flakes back in. My kids can handle a little heat!
