This Chicken Pasta Primavera Recipe is super easy to make, literally it’s finding out what vegetables you would like to put in there. Often I just look for what’s on sale, is it something I like, is it something that would be good in pasta, and then it’s go time. Another way to make this Chicken Pasta Primavera Recipe is by mixing in a simple tomato sauce. By doing this, it helps provide a little body to the pasta and makes it a little bit easier to eat, plus tomatoes go good with everything. I’m kinda like one of those dudes that likes a really hearty pasta and don’t much care what’s in it, because honestly it’s like pizza, even when it’s bad it’s good. In any event, if you’ve got a ton of veggies lying around the house and are not sure what to do with them, then I recommend making a chicken pasta primavera recipe like this one. If you are looking for variations of the recipe and want to know what else you can do with it, then you know where to find me. Enjoy!
