This simple, yet beautiful, pasta primavera recipe is an easy way to pack the veggies in for a tasty and wholesome meal. To much surprise, this dish first appeared in America in the 1970s at the famous New York restaurant Le Cirque, not in Italy (albeit the co-owner is Italian). Whether you want to share with guests as a side dish or enjoy as a main course, this primavera pasta is bound to impress.
Sometimes referred to as risi or orzo, risoni is a versatile type of Italian pasta that has been widely adapted by chefs across the world. While it looks like large grains of rice, risoni pasta cooks quicker than rice and has a higher concentration of protein and carbs, making it suitable for any soup, stew or risotto-style pasta dish.
Pasta primavera translates to “spring pasta” in Italian, making this the ultimate spring dish. Combining all your favourite in-season vegetables – snow peas, asparagus, squash and spinach – for a vibrant, fresh and nutritious meal. Don’t be scared to serve it year-round and adapt with your choice of in-season veggies.
