Emily - October 2006

Pasta Primavera

3 carrots
2 bell peppers (1 yellow, 1 red)
1 onion
2 yellow squash
2 zucchini
1 lb. Bowtie pasta
Olive Oil
Kosher salt
Italian seasoning
1 /2 c. parmesan cheese
4 chicken breasts, marinated in Lawry’s Herb & Garlic

Grill chicken breasts. Cut into strips.

Preheat oven to 450ยบ. Cut all vegetables into strips (only peel the carrots). Line large cookie sheet with foil. Drizzle vegetables with 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning (approx. 1 tablespoon). Mix and spread evenly. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring and flipping vegetables after 10.

Boil pasta according to directions. Reserve 1 c. pasta water and drain pasta. Add vegetables and pasta water (just enough to moisten...you probably won’t need to use all of it.) Add parmesan and chicken and toss!

*This recipe makes a lot! Could easily be cut in half!
