Colorful Pasta Primavera with Creamy Lemon Sauce

Today, I’ve got a fantastic recipe for you that’s not only delicious, but also super quick to whip up. It’s called Pasta Primavera, which in Italian means “spring pasta,” and it’s all about celebrating the fresh flavors of the season. The best part? You can customize it with whatever veggies you have on hand, making it a perfect dish to clear out your fridge!

This Pasta Primavera is a colorful medley of pasta and assorted vegetables tossed in a creamy lemon sauce that’s both comforting and refreshing. It’s a classic Italian dish that’s loved for its simplicity and versatility. The veggies like zucchini, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, and bell pepper not only add vibrant colors but also bring a variety of textures and flavors to the dish.

One of the things I love most about Pasta Primavera is how adaptable it is. Got some leftover veggies from last night’s dinner? Throw them in! This recipe is all about making use of what you have and creating a delicious meal in no time. And this dish will taste great with your favorite type of pasta. So let’s dive in and create our own version of Pasta Primavera, a dish that’s perfect for any day of the week and sure to become a favorite in your kitchen!
