Primavera is Italian for Spring, so naturally we've loaded up this pasta with plenty of spring veggies! We think orecciette is the perfect vehicle for a creamy, cheesy sauce like this one. Spiced up with a little chili pepper heat, this pasta is bound to please!

Instructions
1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil with a large pinch of salt. Meanwhile, halve, peel, and dice the onion.Mince or grate the garlic. Finely chop the parsley. Trim and discard the bottom inch of the asparagus, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Core, seed, and remove the white veins from the bell pepper. Cut into strips, then into 1/2-inch cubes. Cut the broccoli into bite sized florets.

Fill a large bowl with ice water. Add the broccoli to the boiling water for 4-5 minutes, until bright green and crisp-tender. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and reserve in the ice bath. Add the asparagus to the boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until bright green and crisp-tender. Reserve in the ice bath with the broccoli. Keep the water boiling on the stove for the pasta later!

Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the pan and cook 4-5 minutes per side, until juices run clear when pierced. Set aside.
