READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

Another very simple but very delicious dish which capitalizes on fresh vegetables--from Sirio Maccione.

Top Review by Dr. Jenny

We enjoyed this colorful dish. This was also our first time trying perciatelli noodles, which I will buy again (great texture). I'd say this is 5 stars, with the addition of salt and parmesan cheese. This also came together quickly, which we appreciated.
