Big Bowl Pasta Primavera

Recipe by Calee

I have tried a lot of pasta primavera recipes and always come back to this one! This comes together fast if you have the vegetables prepared ahead of time.

I was hoping when I "heated the milk and cheese mixture through" it would thicken and turn creamy. It didn't and I had thin milk at the bottom of the bowl with small cheese clumps mixed throughout the pasta and veggies. Overall taste was ok but I like my primavera with a creamier/thicker sauce and a little more cheese flavor. Very healthy; to the person who looked at the nutrition info. -you have to look closely, this was calculated for only 1 serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine evaporated milk, parmesan cheese, parsley, basil, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper in bowl, set aside.
  2. Cook spaghetti in boiling water and oil and 2 tsp salt in a large uncovered pot for 11-13 minutes, or until tender,drain. Transfer to big bowl, cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. Heat wok or frying pan on medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp oil, add carrots, onion, celery and garlic, stir fry until soft. Transfer to big bowl.
  4. Add 1 tbsp oil to hot wok, add cauliflower and broccoli, stir fry 4 minutes, add pea pods and zucchini, stir fry 2 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes and evaporated milk mixture,stir until heated through. Transfer to big bowl toss to mix every thing well.
  6. My family loves this with a few handfuls of cooked prawns on the top. I don't like crunchy carrots in this dish, par boil them for 5 minutes.
