Light Pasta Primavera
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
16 ingredients
6 servings
The sauce on this is not a thick alfredo-type sauce, so don't expect that. It is a light sauce with a touch of garlic. My experience is that by adding the broth, I can reduce the amount of butter in the dish by quite a lot, while still maintaining a very moist and flavorful taste. If you are inclined, you can add some diced cooked chicken or some shrimp along with the pasta in Step 7.
