"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." — Fight the Fat Foodie

1 (16 ounce) package
whole wheat penne pasta
green bell pepper, diced
1 (8 ounce) package
1 (14.5 ounce) can
stewed tomatoes, coarsely chopped
low-sodium chicken broth
chopped fresh parsley
red pepper flakes
grated Parmesan cheese
shredded smoked Gouda cheese
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.
This is one of my absolute favorites. Very excited to see that it is Kitchen Approved.
Very good. Wouldn't change a thing. It's a great way to get all your veggies!
This was awesome. It got raves reviews from everyone in my family. I will be making this again and again.
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!
