This eight ingredient Asiago Shrimp Pasta Primavera comes together in around 15 minutes. It’s an easy weeknight meal and kid-friendly dinner. #VivaBertolli
After a long day of work (or school), we all just want to sit down and relax. One non-negotiable is all sitting down for dinner together. We talk about the day’s highs and lows and everything else in between.
When a meal comes together in less than 30 minutes, that works perfectly for me!
How to Use Fresh Seasonal Ingredients
I wanted to experiment with using fresh, seasonal produce for this dish. Seasonal vegetables typically available in the spring include:
- artichoke greens (including braising mix, asparagus frisee, mustard, nettles, tat-soi), Haas avocado, kale, broccoli, leeks, cabbages, mushrooms, morels, carrots, spring onions, cauliflower, peas (edible pods), celeriac/celery root, radishes, celery, spinach, chard, spring salad mix, collards, sunchokes, fennel, and green garlic.
Broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower are vegetables I usually have on hand in my produce drawer. I figured they would make the perfect combo for this fresh dish.
My favorite seafood combined with fresh vegetables transform this cheesy, saucy pasta dish into a (healthy) new family favorite!
