Pasta Primavera

While it sounds Italian, this dish was actually created in the 1970s in the United States by Siro Maccioni. He was the Tuscan co-owner of  the famous New York restaurant Le Cirque. It was here that he  introduced Pasta Primavera as an off-menu special.

The original version had a rich cream sauce. Over the years, many different variations have been created in an effort to lighten the dish. Chicken or shrimp can be added as an additional protein. Be creative and make it your own! 

Primavera means spring in Italian, so  feel free to use a mix of your favorite fresh and colorful vegetables ~ from the Farmer's Market, your garden or refrigerator.
