Handcrafted Favorites for Primavera

“Primavera” means “spring” in Italian…if you dissect the word you get ‘prima’ which means ‘first’ and ‘vera’ which is a variation on ‘verde’ or ‘green’. Thus… ‘first green’, or the beginning of the spring season.  So the dish Cavatappi Primavera is the pasta equivalent of celebrating the spring vegetable harvest!

Although nowadays we can get these vegetables almost anytime, in the past people ate much more seasonally, so a dish like Primavera would have been a rare treat as spring vegetables were harvested.
