Creamy Pasta Primavera

Pasta Primavera is simply pasta with vegetables seasoned with some herbs; I like this pasta dish because I can add any vegetable ( not leafy ones although I sometimes add spinach ) I want or whatever is available to me; I like to add some meat too, like chicken breast fillet, to make it a complete one-dish meal.

It’s one of the easiest ways to give veggies to kids; my daughter, who only eats veggies because I make her, said she really like this pasta, the veggies especially the carrots-her least favorite- taste better this way.

I like to use soy cream in pasta dishes because it gives the same creaminesss as regular cream without the worry. I can’t have too many cream/dairy in my diet ( for some reason I get a lot of phlegm in my system  whenever I have cream/dairy) so I try to cut back whenever possible.

This creamy Pasta Primavera is very quick and easy to make too, or I wouldn’t make it often. What I usually do is: I cut/slice the veggies while boiling water for the pasta…
