Linguine Primavera Preparation
In a large pasta pot bring salted water to a boil.
Add the Linguine and cook based upon the package instructions.
While the pasta is cooking, scoop out about 1-1/2 cups of the pasta cooking water and put aside.
In a large skillet (large enough to hold the vegetables and cooked Linguine) melt the butter.
Add the sliced vegetables, cover and simmer until tender.
Add the heavy cream, peas, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
Stir in the herbs.
If while simmering the sauce it becomes too thick, add some of the reserved pasta cooking water.
When the Linguine is tender, drain and add to the vegetables and cream sauce. Then season the Linguine primavera with salt and pepper.
This meal presents nicely in a warming dish on low heat. Top with additional fresh herbs, freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano, and the toasted pine nuts.
