Pasta Primavera:

Ingredients:

  • ½ box favorite noodles
  • 2 cups asparagus, cut into 1 inch slices 
  • extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 yellow or red pepper, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small red onion, chopped (or 1 tbsp onion powder)
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ½  cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper (or more if you like a little more kick)
  • 4 chicken breasts boiled and shredded
  • ¼ cup sliced fresh basil or Litehouse Basil
  • ½ shredded parmesan cheese 
  • 1 large bunch super greens

 

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to directions.  Add asparagus for last two minutes of cooking time.  Drain pasta and asparagus and set aside.
  2. In a large fry pan saute yellow or red pepper, mushrooms, onion and garlic for 5 minutes in EVOO.  Add broth, whipping cream, salt and crushed pepper.  Bring to a slight boil and cook until thick.
  3. Add chicken, basil, parmesan cheese, and pasta mixture to fry pan.  Stir on low for 5-8 minutes until well combined and sauce is absorbed.
  4. Serve with your favorite super greens on the side.

 

Tips:

  1. If you are short on time use a shredded rotisserie chicken.  We prefer to make our own version of rotisserie like chicken
  2. This dish is best if you allow time for all of the flavors to combine and for the sauce to become absorbed.
  3. If you are using onion powder add it when you add the whipping cream and broth.  This will prevent the powder from browning.
  4. You can substitute rice for the noodles and make this recipe gluten free.  
  5. I also use this recipe to clean out fresh vegetables from my fridge.  Sometimes I add zucchini, spinach, peas, and green beans.
