Easy Pasta Primavera


Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 6

This meatless entrée uses chicken broth and a little cornstarch instead of the usual cream and butter to make a tasty but lighter version of classic pasta primavera.


2 Tbs cornstarch

1 3/4 cups Chicken Broth

1 tsp oregano leaves

1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 cups broccoli flowerets

1 cup sliced carrots

1 medium onion

1 cup medium tomato

4 cups thin spaghetti

3 Tbs Parmesan cheese


Stir the cornstarch and 3/4 cup broth in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Heat the remaining broth, oregano, garlic powder, broccoli, carrots and onion in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Stir the cornstarch mixture in the saucepan. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the tomato. Add the spaghetti and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the cheese.
