#Celebrate #Spring With Pasta Primavera

Hey Everyone! :-)

Since the weather is getting warmer, I thought I'd share one of my favorite spring time recipes with you. Enjoy! :-)

2 cups frozen peas
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 large tomatoes chopped
1 zucchini or yellow summer squash sliced
1 red bell pepper chopped
1 16oz package sliced button mushrooms
1 small onion chopped
6 cloves garlic minced
1 bag bow-tie pasta (or whatever shape of pasta you like)
1/2 cup vegetable stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil water in a stock pot and add 2 tbsps salt. When water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente. Remove pasta from water and set aside.

Put the butter and olive oil into a skillet and heat until butter melts. Add the onion and cook until it starts to caramelize. Add the garlic, bell pepper, mushrooms, and zucchini and cook until softened. Add the broccoli and tomato and stir together. Add the vegetable stock and stir together. Add the frozen peas and stir in the cream. Stir in the cheese and taste. Adjust salt and pepper as necessary. Cook until completed sauce starts to bubble, stirring continuously. Remove from heat, stir in cooked pasta, and serve.

Buon Appetito! :-)
