Pasta Primavera was named because it uses the vegetables that are available in the spring. Even though, you can find these vegetables year round, it is typically associated with spring. This is one of my ‘go-to’ pasta dishes. These are many times when I want to make a quick delicious dinner that is easy to prepare. I prefer to use freshly grated parmesan cheese when cooking, it adds such great flavor and far surpasses pre-grated cheese that is found in the stores. Parmesan is a hard cheese, the easiest way to grate the cheese is to cube the cheese and process in your food processor until fine.
