Barilla Veggie Penne
extra virgin olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, shaved
This dish is good with plain penne, too.
This recipe is badly flawed, although with the following steps you can make it delicious. First break off the ends of all the asparagus before cutting in fine rounds. Then use ONLY 1/4 of a box of veggie pasta. Use ONLY 3/4 cup of the cooking water, and simmer the zucchini and asparagus until they are fork tender. Add the drained pasta and toss with ONLY 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
I made some slight modifications because I did not have oregano or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. I just used Parmesan grated cheese instead. Also I only used one medium size zucchini instead of two small ones. Tasted GREAT!!
A made no changes and it turned out great!
I loved this recipe but I added some chicken to it to make more of a meal out of it
Very bland. Too much pasta per vegetable amoutn
Liked this for meatless option. Added some chopped yellow peppers to add some spice, lots of options you could use with this recipe.
I used Pecorino Romano . It is delicious and cheese is reasonable.
