Pasta Primavera – One Pot Meal!

Doesn’t get easier than this! 15 minute meal – all made in ONE POT! Healthy, gluten free, dairy free and absolutely delicious! This pasta primavera recipe will become a staple in your house, everyone will love it! And whoever is cooking will love it, because it’s no hassle to make and even better, no hassle to CLEAN!

Do not make this in advance or it won’t be creamy. Make it and be ready to serve as soon as it’s finished! Feel free to double the recipe. These amounts will comfortably serve 3-4 people.

8 oz pasta (gluten free, brown rice pasta, whole wheat, etc)
4 cups vegetable broth
1 yellow onion
2 cups broccoli florets (about 1 head)
1 bunch of asparagus
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbls olive oil
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/3 cup coconut milk
8 oz white beans
1 tbls lemon juice (plus extra for garnish)

1. Cut up the onion, broccoli and asparagus.

2. In a large pot, add the pasta, broth, onion, broccoli, asparagus, salt, pepper and olive oil. Stir, cover and bring to a boil.

3. Once it boils, set a timer for 7 minutes and continue to boil.

4. After 7 minutes, add in the parsley, beans and coconut milk. Boil for another 2-3 minutes and when most of the liquid has absorbed and the pasta is al dente, you’re ready to serve! Toss with the fresh lemon juice before serving.

If you’re not a vegetarian and want to add some protein, go for it! Chicken, shrimp or salmon would be delicious! If it’s already cooked, add it in at the last second just to warm it. If it hasn’t been cooked yet, you can add it in raw and it will cook when your pot boils! I’ve done that in some of my other one pot meals, check them out!

Enjoy!
