Enjoyed it a lot. Not too thick and the veggies were cooked right. Would use this recipe again.
a delicious recipe! my wife who is always asking for more veggies was pleased and satisfied and said this should be on regular rotation for the two of us. Definite keeper and unlike most reviewers made NO substitutions.
I used mascarpone instead of cream and cherry tomatoes instead of Roma. Delicious!
This pasta is absolutely amazing!!!! I substituted spinach for asparagus added a little sliced onion and sun dried tomatoes and omitted snow peas. I also used half and half (grocery was out of heavy cream) and added just a dash of crushed red pepper. So so good…my husband loved it too!
Makes a non-veggie type person (even a carnivore loving husband) MMMMMing and MMMMMing over dinner! Yum!It was a craving – so, I looked it up and this was the first recipe that popped up!I added baby carrots, fresh corn from the cob, mushrooms and subbed the asparagus for cut up brussel spouts. Omitted a lot of the parm cheese and used whole wheat spaghetti.It made a lot of food! I feel it will freeze well too. Good thing as I am going to be craving this a lot. A feel good meal, especially after a work out.For some heat and bold flavor, I can recommend cayenne pepper and chili flakes.This recipe is 5 star worthy and I thank the original poster!
I’ve been searching for a Primavera recipe like this for years to no avail and had finally given up until recently pregnancy cravings had me on the hunt again. This dish absolutely hit the spot. As a personal preference I used whole wheat penne, steamed my broccoli and asparagus, added mushrooms, shrimp, extra garlic and topped with BelGioioso cheeses. I kept the heart of the recipe (the sauce) exactly as is. I can’t say enough about it. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this exquisite delight with the world. :)
This was SO GOOD! I want to eat it every day! But I can’t figure out why it had such flavor. Maybe the vegetables being cooked together?
Made this tonight and it was delicious! I added chicken bc we aren’t vegetarians. ;)
Easy and great tasting!
With the broth, cream, butter, and parmesan, it’s more like an alfredo sauce, which generally needs to be made in a saucepan on its own. The flavors of this dish are really good, but trying to make the “sauce” (as it’s called here) while the vegetables are in the pan makes it so that the cheese sticks to the vegetables and does not blend in with the milk and cream. My end result was a flavorful dish, but a gloppy consistency. Any thoughts?
Hi Erin, I would just stir in more stock or water.
The temp was too low when you added the cheese. As it says bring it to a boil, lower temp add cheese (immediately). I used fresh grated. Pre-grated shaker cheese may be too dry.
Pasta is one of my all time favourite dish. Does regular spaghetti will look or tastes like a capellini after preparation?
Hi Natasha, the thin pasta holds more of the seasoning, so yes, not only does it feel very different in the mouth, the taste is different too. I don’t recommend making this with regular spaghetti pasta.
This was simple elegant and delish. Definite hit w my picky kids. They loved it. Keeping in rotation! Thanx
Delicious! Just made this with white wine + chicken bouillon granules instead of chicken broth, and had to use half & half because I didn’t have cream. I can imagine it’s better with cream! Thank you!
I made this recipe (using vegetable broth) for a dinner party and it was an enormous success! My guests ate every last bite, with a couple even asking for seconds. Substituting angel hair pasta for heavier spaghetti was the perfect way to modernize this classic meal.
Made this tonight. It was fantastic! A perfect summer dish for dinners out on the deck!
How can this be filed under ‘vegetarian’ if in step 3, you are pouring in chicken broth? How is it with using veggie broth instead? Anyone?
It’s filed under ‘Vegetarian’ because this recipe is wonderful done with vegetable stock. ~Hank
Mmmmm. I need to make this soon. May I also suggest Spaghetti Squash instead of pasta? Since we have tomato allergy in our family I’ll also be using roasted red peppers instead.
This was delicious. I threw in some shrimp and mushrooms as well, and used white wine instead of chicken broth. YUMMY!!! Will definitely make it again.
Fabulous! We used yellow squash instead of zucchini, fresh sugar snap peas instead of the snow peas and peas, and just sprinkled each serving with fresh torn basil leaves. A definate do over.
Made this last night. Store was out of snow peas and I forgot the peas in the freezer. I bought some sweet peppers instead and also cut some green beans. Turned out great. Also used more broth and cream. I like my pasta creamy. Had not eaten this before, but the preparation reminded me of Espageti verde (green pasta), a mexican dish where poblano peppers are blended with cream and added to spaghetti. Thanks for sharing.
