Whether Giada De Laurentiis is leaving a recipe on her personal Instagram account or her more professional account thegiadzy, fans can’t help but comment with heart-eye emojis and words similar to “yummy.” And that’s exactly what they did when she dropped her Pasta Primavera dish. The aesthetically pleasing video, posted to thegiadzy Instagram, shows her stirring a colorful bowl full of pasta and vegetables. The recipe itself was originally published on Everyday Italian.
The caption for this post reads, “Nothing says spring like pasta primavera — literally!” This pasta dish, as the caption says, isn’t made with the classic sautéed vegetables, but rather roasted “which cooks it more evenly and caramelizes it.”
This recipe, which comes together in about 45 minutes, calls for multicolored vegetables like peppers, tomatoes, carrots, and zucchini to be seasoned and baked for about 20 minutes. The veggies are then combined with pasta, pasta water, salt, pepper, and parmesan.
Pasta primavera is a classic dish that is a staple in both Italian and other cuisines. There are many references to pasta primavera recipes, although De Laurentiis’ version might be a favorite for many.
