Ease into the week with this ridiculously fast and easy One Skillet Pappardelle Pasta Primavera – perfect for a Meatless Monday dinner.
I love Meatless Mondays. Or Tuesdays through Sundays for that matter. They’re so easy! Nothing to have to remember to pull out of the freezer to thaw. No grill or oven to preheat. No braising, broiling, roasting or grilling. And no worrying whether it will be tough – or too pink inside. Oh, and of course, there’s all of that important environmental stuff, and the fact that people who eat more plant-based meals tend to be healthier overall. But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s Monday, and we’re coming off the weekend, and we’re all busy, and we need easy for dinner tonight. Plus, sometimes on a Sunday night, I just really don’t like to write long, involved recipes and blog posts.
Enter – One Pan Pappardelle Pasta Primavera.
Pappardelle pasta is one of my favorites – nice thick pasta pieces with a good bite. I always feel like I’m making something restaurant-worthy when I cook with pappardelle, so I stock up on it whenever I stop at Trader Joe’s. This recipe tastes kind of Friday night fancy, but I assure you – it’s a 15 minute meal that totally cooks in one skillet. I love to pack as many fresh, spring vegetables into it as I can (it is Meatless Monday, after all), and they’re all so happy to share the skillet with a light, lemon cream sauce.
So. Pretty. What is they say about tasting the rainbow? Who needs meat anyway?
