Pasta Primavera with Smoked Gouda

Recipe by  

"What better way to get your veggies in than with a savory Italian dish like Pasta Primavera. My version combines a little bit of heat from red pepper flakes with fresh vegetables, herbs and the smokey flavor of a smoked Gouda cheese. It's a wonderful combination of crunchy and creamy."

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the zucchini, bell pepper, carrots, mushrooms, and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for one minute more. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken broth, parsley, basil, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens. Stir in the pasta and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Top with Parmesan and Gouda cheeses before serving.

This was fantastic! I used quite a bit more gouda than the recipe because I had it and a red pepper instead of green (red was curiously less expensive than the green). And of course, it took me a bit longer than 50 minutes to get it finished. Maybe I'm a slow veggie chopper. Worth the work and I will definitely make this one again!

I really didn't like this recipe and neither did my BF. I don't know what it was about it that I didn't like...but it was sort of bland and not really liking the smoked gouda flavor. It made a HUGE pot too and feel bad throwing it away, so will try to give it away to friends or family in hopes of someone liking it.

Used Mozzerella because I didn't have gouda. Substitutted some veggies to use what I had on hand, threw in asparagus - EVERYONE loved! Small picky children included. Leftovers great too.

We enjoyed this... healthy and tasty. I can't wait to try it with fresh herbs and veggies from the garden this summer. The whole wheat pasta goes very well with this dish and the smoked gouda is a must, I wouldn't replace it with anything else! Thanks for sharing.

Loved it! I absolutely love many varieties of cheese, so the smoked gouda caught my eye! The wonderful assortment of fresh veggies simmered in the chicken broth with simple, but flavourful spices makes this a winning combo, even better served over whole wheat pasta! The smoked gouda and fresh parmesan adds a whole new dimension of flavours...excellent! A repeat dish for sure!
