Recipe News: Penne with Vegetables

"Easy to prepare for a pleasing weeknight meal, this primavera-style recipe helps you with your “5-a-day” goal by providing a generous array of vegetables – more than 1 cup per serving.

A specialty of the Campania Region, which includes Naples, Capri and Sorrento, the name penne comes from the Italian word for pen. Whole-wheat and white versions are available, along with gluten-free penne made from corn, rice and other ingredients.

From the zucchini, the jewel of the squash family – with its spring-like flavor and flesh as delicate as a flower – to the broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes, this medley of vegetables provides an extensive range of texture and taste. The word zucchini comes from the Italian zucchino, meaning small squash. And, as a general rule, smaller zucchinis are tastier than the larger varieties."
