Veggie Pasta Primavera #SundaySupper

One night a month my bestie and I get together, we alternate homes to prepare dinner, sip on some cocktails and just catch up. We started this tradition years ago after I had my first child to help us save money. I still needed my girly time and she was saving money for a wedding so this helped the good ol’ wallet for both of us. Now almost five years later we’ve made some fun dishes together, we have both purchased new homes and she is now a happily married wife. I love tradition as much as I love this girl so when she asked me what should we make, I said well I’m thinking Spring!!! I need a spring recipe for this weeks Sunday Supper! She loves pinterest almost as much as me so she found a recipe for Veggie Pasta Primavera. Of course we altered it to our likes and oh my did it scream SPRING! We have been patiently waiting for spring can you tell?

If I were to talk about my best friend you’d probably think I was talking about my husband. I consider her my other half to my other half. She’s there in a drop of a dime, loves my kids like they were her own, completes my sentences and gets my shy yet smarty attitude of mine. I got a husband and a best friend upon meeting my hubby. OK so on to this Veggie Pasta Primavera that rocked.  This is an easy dish that you can prepare in minutes and alter it using the spring veggies you may enjoy. We often forget that a little bit of olive oil, parmesan cheese, lemon juice and pepper can go a long way. A special thank you to our hostess, Renee from Renee’s Kitchen Adventures! There are over 60 recipes so grab a cup of coffee (or wine) and start pinning my friends!
