Ingredients

  • 12 ounces bow-tie pasta
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow squash, diced
  • 1/2 cup thin asparagus tips and stalks, sliced in 1-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
  • 14.5 oz. organic tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup basil, chiffonade
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings, garnish

Directions

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until just tender, about 12 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and quickly saute the vegetables until just tender. Do not overcook. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
