Enhance Pasta Night

Aug 24, 2015 05:08AM ● Published by Family Features

If you’re looking for new ways to enjoy the delightful flavors of veggies, you may find inspiration in unexpected places. Pasta provides the perfect backdrop for a medley of your favorite garden flavors, but you can take those dishes to a whole new level with a little update to your everyday meal.

Building your dish around flavored pasta allows you to instantly create layers of deliciously palate-pleasing tastes and textures. One way to brighten up your flavor is with new Buitoni vegetable-infused pasta, which is inspired by the abundant gardens of Italy.

This unique style of pasta is created by folding real vegetables into the dough for a visually stunning pasta. For example, the pasta in this recipe for Red Pepper Ravioli with Pan-Roasted Corn features pureed sweet red pepper incorporated directly into the dough for a rich combination of color and flavor.
