1/1 Photo of Pasta Primavera
Roasting the veggies makes this unique from any other Primavera. This is truly TO DIE FOR! My take on a Giada de Laurentiis dish. I've tweaked it quite a bit. I have also tossed about 2 cups of rotisserie chicken in with the veggies and also used tortellini instead of the bowtie pasta. (I also add mushrooms when DH isn't home!) Anyway, it's a very easy recipe to play around with! Enjoy!
