I received an email this morning with a few Olive Garden Copycat recipes in it. Here is one of them that I don't see posted on Zaar yet.

I have been making a version of this for over a decade. I add sweet white wine when the vegetables are almost done and simmer it, "light boil" until it has reduced at least half of the wine. I also use fresh basil and San Marsano canned tomatoes whenever possible, they are grown by the ocean in Italy in a volcanic ash soil. They get a salty flavor from the sea breeze and the soil adds to the flavor. Awesome sauce!!!! Pun intended.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook one minute. Add remaining spice and tomato ingredients, stir well and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Saute vegetables about 3 minutes until crisp - tender. Add to the sauce and simmer 5 minutes more.
  3. Cook pasta according to directions. When pasta is almost done, stir shrimp into sauce to heat through. Do not boil. Spoon Primavera over hot linguine. Pass Parmesan cheese.
