This Pasta Primavera recipe from Nancy’s Pizzeria is full of veggies, flavor

I visited Nancy’s Pizzeria recently and was intrigued with the Pasta Primavera. I wasn’t expecting such delicious pasta from place so well known for its pizza. I would love to have their recipe. Thanks so much.

Kayla Howey is corporate chef for Nancy’s Pizzeria and the other restaurants of Chicago Franchise System. She’s a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and one of her many responsibilities is creating new dishes for the restaurants, in particular developing the dishes for Nancy’s full service offerings. She was happy to share this recipe. The restaurants’ portions will be a bit larger than what we’re suggesting here.

We found that one small bunch of broccolini equaled the amount we needed for this recipe. For the fettucine, we found that 1/4 pound of dried fettucine gave us the cooked yield we needed. Be sure to cook it just a little shy of completely done since it will cook more in the sauce as you finish the dish.
