Pasta Primavera

We are back from vacation and it feels so great to be cooking in my kitchen again:) and of course blogging for you guys!

I got this recipe many years ago on and its been one of my favorites pasta dishes to make since. Don’t let the long ingredient list intimidate you, this dish takes so quick to whip up and its absolutely delicious, tastes like its from a fancy restaurant. Oh and did i mention its healthy!:)

To warm up the next day add to a skillet with a little bit of water on low heat. Tastes just as good the next day! :)
