Vegetable Pasta Primavera with Goat Cheese

Pasta Primavera Recipe adapted from Food Network:
This is a great vege dish !

1 Box Pasta - corkscrew 
1/2 cup reserved water, from cooked pasta/veges 
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 Cup Fresh Shredded Carrots
2 cups Fresh Sugar Snap Peas, cut in half
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
1 Package Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in half
3-4 cloves Garlic, sliced thin 
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 Cup chopped *Fresh Mint (I used chopped Parsley)
4 oz. Goat Cheese, crumbled
1/2 Cup Grated *Parmesan Cheese (I omitted this)
In large pot, cook pasta according to package, 
adding in the bell peppers, peas and carrots
for the last 2 minutes of boiling the pasta;
this softens the veges, leaving them a bit crisp.
Reserve 1/2 cup water; drain the rest.
Place cooked pasta / veges in large serving bowl.
Heat the olive oil on medium heat; 
Add in the garlic, lightly brown.
Carefully add in the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and salt;
stir slowly for about 2 minutes; take care not to over heat
as the skins will begin to come off!
Add in the 1/2 cup reserved pasta /vege water.
Stir well.  Pour over the pasta/veges, adding in the
crumbled goat cheese, *mint, and * Parmesan cheese. 
Mix gently with a spoon, stirring and melting the goat cheese.
Serve warm. 
This is another "better the next day" recipes.

  1. This looks absolutly delicious!! I'm going to make this on Friday can't wait to try your recipe!!

    1. It's really really good! I'm trying a lot of pasta dishes this summer. Thanks for stopping and commenting. Have a great day!

  2. Ohhh that looks yummy! I can't do pasta anymore so i wonder how it would be with spaghetti squash or zuchinni noodles? Certainly sounds worth a try, and hey, I could always just have the sauce!

    1. Do give those alternatives a try, and please let me know how it goes. Goodness, I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't eat pasta.

  3. Looks yummy! Thanks for sharing at the Pomp Party! Pinning to our Pomp Party Board!
