Creamy Pasta Primavera

17 May

Creamy Pasta Primavera is a favorite dinner recipe, especially when spring veggies are abundant.  With farmers markets reopening, this is a great recipe to make that truly highlights the best in-season, local vegetables have to offer.  Creamy Pasta Primavera is a cinch to make, taking about 20 minutes total.  This recipe gets even better though, by offering a low calories, low fat, yet full flavor to the traditional Pasta Primavera recipes, with a hint of lemon.

There is no heavy cream, or cheese in this recipe.  Creamy Pasta Primavera recipe uses nonfat yogurt to replace the traditional sauce ingredients.  I used a plain greek nonfat yogurt, and it worked wonderfully.  You’ll never be able to tell the difference.  Stirring a little cornstarch into the yogurt helps prevent it from curdling when mixed with the hot ingredients.  For the lemon-herb blend seasoning, you can use lemon-pepper seasoning, or, I used a seafood/chicken grill Zesty Lemon Seasoning.  Even though you’re only using a teaspoon, it adds a great touch of flavor.
