Rainbow Pasta Primavera

15 Min

Our Rainbow Pasta Primavera is a warm and colorful pasta dish that's loaded with all of your favorite Spring veggies! It's a dish that highlights the freshness (and tastiness!) of the season.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) package bow-tie pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 pound asparagus, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced into half moons
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow or red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 plum tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting the salt; drain and keep warm. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil; sauté  asparagus, onion, carrots, and bell pepper 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and garlic.
  2. In a small bowl, combine broth and dressing mix; pour over vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 to 7 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a large bowl, combine warm pasta and vegetable mixture; add Parmesan cheese, if desired, and toss until well coated. Serve immediately.
