Helpful hints

  • This is nice served over linguine cooked al dente.
  • If sauce seems too dry, you can add a little water or white wine.
  • 1 medium zucchini and 1 medium yellow summer squash each yield 3/4 cup julienne cut.
  • Crushed red or black pepper adds extra zest.

Primavera Sauce for Pasta

Does it just turn to sauce? Cook long enough to cook the veg. into pulpy stage?? What thickens it if not pulp from the veggies? I'm a good cook, but this one throws me for a loop. Sorry to be so dense today. Dietitian comment: Yes, cook it long enough until the vegetables are very soft, with a sauce-like consistency. The next time I prepare it I will time it and add more information to the recipe.
