Pasta Primavera

Alyssa Aron


This makes a great main dish or side dish. Add chicken or shrimp for some extra protein. I probably make this at least 3 times a month.

8 oz
pasta of choice
3 c
broccoli florets
5 clove
1/2 c
white wine
4 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2 pinch
red chili flakes
salt and pepper
1/2 c
parmesan cheese


1Boil water for pasta. While it's heating up, chop up the zucchini and broccoli into bite size pieces.

2Thinly slice the garlic, and add to a pan with the olive oil and chili flakes. Add some salt and pepper and set this pan aside. Chop the tomatoes and set aside.

3Cook the pasta according to package directions. Once there are 3 minutes of cooking time left, add the zucchini and broccoli to the pasta water and let them cook with the pasta.

4On medium heat, cook the garlic and red chili flake mixture until the garlic starts turning golden. At that point, add the chopped tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes until they are soft. Add white wine and let reduce for about 5 minutes.

5Drain the pasta and veggies, but reserve about 1/2 cup of the pasta water to add to the garlic tomato sauce. Add the garlic/tomato sauce to the pasta and toss. Add salt and pepper and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
