(NC) - Primavera means "springtime," but don't let that limit you to spring vegetables. Other vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower work well in this dish too.
In a large shallow saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add red pepper, zucchini, asparagus, salt and black pepper; cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp. Add pasta sauce and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water; cook linguine for about 10 minutes or until al dente (tender but firm to the bite). Drain and return to the pot. Add sauce, parsley and cheese; toss to coat.
In late summer or early fall, substitute 2 cups (500 mL) chopped fresh plum tomatoes for the pasta sauce for a real hit of fresh tomato flavour.
To add some kick, chop a fresh hot pepper, such as a finger chili or jalapeno and cook it with the vegetables-that's a spicy pasta.
