Pasta Primavera

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:20
  • Estimated Cost $11.50

We love how this colorful pasta dish is indulgent yet relatively light. As a bonus, you can cook everything in the same pot, which means less time spent doing dishes and more time enjoying your dinner. For a protein boost, add sliced grilled chicken breast over the top.


  • 1 large bunch broccoli, cut into florets $0.75
  • 1/2 lb penne pasta $2
  • 2 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • 1 cup frozen green peas $1.50
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped $0.75
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half $1.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 1 small bunch fresh basil, chopped $1
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese $4 for 12 oz


  1. Cook pasta according to directions in salted water. Drain and set aside. 
  2. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, watching carefully to avoid burning. Add broccoli and red pepper and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add  pasta and peas and stir gently to coat well with the olive oil in the pan. Add the half-and-half and stir as it thickens into a sauce. Season well with salt and pepper, stir in Parmesan and basil. Serve hot.

Tormenting at work environment isn’t an outsider idea and we as a whole have caught wind of it commonly before since the historical backdrop of the world. It applies generally in male-arranged callings. It relies on the word choice of the male network that how would they dismiss ladies’ endeavors and on what grounds.
