Ingredients You’ll Need

The items needed for this recipe are simple but combine to create the creamiest texture and an incredibly rich flavor. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Veggies – Onion, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, and frozen green peas combine to create the most vibrant and nutritious pasta dish you’ll ever find. 
  • Seasonings – Garlic, salt, crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, black pepper, and Italian parsley create a bold flavor. 
  • Broth – Chicken or vegetable broth is used to cook the pasta and add an extra rich taste.
  • Cheese – We used a combination of Mascarpone, shredded Parmesan, and shaved Parmesan cheese for the ultimate creamy sauce. 
  • Cream – As if the cheese wasn’t enough, heavy cream is stirred in with the pasta for a truly irresistible dinner.
