Here is a pretty poor pasta primavera I had in Banff at a fairly fancy restaurant.
Obviously no care was taken in the plating, just slopped on the plate and not tidied up. Also vegetables were overcooked and the sauce too heavy for primavera.
Here’s a penne dish I made for us. Looks much more appealing, doesn’t it? This is not primavera but the remnants of the meat sauce I made a few days ago. I extended by adding more tomatoes and their juice. Remember the saying, “You eat with your eyes first!”
