    Ma Field's Note:

    This came from the first onslaught of zucchini from my garden, coupled with a handful of this-n-that from the fridge. A very forgiving recipe - more of a technique to me - as the ingredients can be interchanged to suit tastes and fridge contents.

      Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.

      This was a veggie dish I could really feel good about! I used a combination of bell pepper, carrots, onion, spinach, and artichoke hearts. I omitted the shrimp but served the pasta with broiled tilapia. I also subbed gluten free pasta with excellent results. The garlic and lemon were delish, but next time I think I'll shake a little Italian seasoning and maybe some red pepper flakes for some extra oomph. Thank you for posting!

      This is a great pasta dish, and will certainly be very versatile re ingredients, tho I went with the original recipe this time! Colourful, fresh and full of flavour, I enjoyed the addition of lemon juice which added some zest! (Excuse the pun :)) Quick to make, ideal for mid-week suppers, I'll certainly be making this again. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2008

      Fantastic! I have been looking online for hours tonight for a Shrimp Pasta Primavera recipe. This one will be perfect for dinner tomorrow night. I like the fact that this recipe calls for "assorted" fresh veggies. I like to experiment so this will be perfect. Thank you.
