Pasta Primavera

After our last trip to the Farmers Market I felt obligated to make Pasta Primavera because of all the fresh, delicious vegetables I purchased: mushrooms, onions, zucchini, asparagus, pepper... I mean how could I refuse. There are many variations to this dish but here is how I like to make it.

I started by washing and cutting all the vegetables and then into the frying pan for a little sautéing in butter.

I aslo add a little dash of red pepper flakes to the vegetables for a little spice.

After sautéing until the vegetables were tender I added

3/4 cup of heavy cream

1/2 cup chicken stock

tbsp basil and a tbsp oregano

1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese

dash of nutmeg,

dash of cracked pepper

a pinch of salt

Cook all together for about 2-4 minutes.

Then serve over your favorite pasta. Top with a little more parmesan cheese.

Bon Appetite !
