Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pappardelle, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, reserving some pasta water. Coat with 1 tablespoon olive oil; set aside.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add zucchini; cook and stir until zucchini begins to brown around the edges but is still firm. Stir in asparagus, broccoli, and green beans; continue to cook until vegetables turn bright green in color, about 3 minutes. Add green onions and garbanzo beans; cook and stir until vegetables are lightly browned around the edges.

  • Add reserved pasta water to vegetables. Cover skillet; reduce heat to low and simmer until garbanzos are heated through and vegetables are just tender. Stir vegetables and basil into pasta; season to taste with salt and pepper, and top with crumbled feta.

Very good! I left out the extra pasta water, but it was plenty moist. We didn't have zucchini and can't eat cheese, so I left those out as well. It was very flavorful even with just salt, pepper and basil. I threw the pasta and veggies together and let them sit in a covered dish for 30 minutes while we went trick or treating and it was perfect when we got back, still warm and flavors well blended.

I did not care for this recipe at all. The garbanzo beans smelled really awful and I had to extract all of them from the vegie mixture. Also the vegie mixture was pretty bland and dry. The noodles were good I couldn't get them to mix into the vegies so I kept them separate. Read More

I have to admit I didn't know what pappardelle pasta was so I got the spiral kind. Now I know and I've tried it both ways. This recipe is great no matter what type of pasta you use. The feta really adds just the right finish. We will be making this a regular in our home. Read More

This was a very pretty dish. I really enjoyed the simplicity of the flavors. A little salt and pepper did wonders. I didn't add the broccoli (seemed like it had enough veggies) I also used dried basil and whole wheat pasta. Both seemed to work just fine. Definately a keeper! Read More

This dish is so healthy and delicious. I used butter to fry up the veggies, and totally drown the finished product in feta... mmmmmmmmm... delicious! Read More

Added about 3 TBSP of pesto, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 1/2 diced jalapeno, 2 green onions. Good, easy, & nutritious. Without additions, think this would have been rather bland. Read More

Good not great. A little bland. We did try adding chicken broth instead of pasta water and some garlic but still missing something... Read More
