Penne with Spring Vegetables

Who says pasta has to be heavy? This light-and-fresh dish highlights basil, asparagus, squash and cherry tomatoes, mixing them with always delicious penne pasta. Tossed in a light coating of olive oil, this is the perfect meal for an al fresco spring dinner.

About Barilla

Founded 140 years ago in Parma out of a shop that made bread and pasta, Barilla is among the top Italian food groups: leader for pasta in the world, pasta sauces in continental Europe, bakery products in Italy and the crisp bread business in Scandinavia. The Barilla Group owns 28 production sites (14 in Italy and 14 abroad) and exports to more than 100 countries. Every year, Barilla plants turn out around 1,700,000 tons of food products that are consumed on tables all over the world, under the following brand names: Barilla, Mulino Bianco, Harrys, Pavesi, Wasa, Filiz, Yemina e Vesta, Misko, Voiello and Academia Barilla. When the first shop opened in 1877, Pietro Barilla focused on making good food. Today, this has evolved into a unique way of doing business for the Barilla Group: “Good for You, Good for the Planet.” ‘Good for You’ means constantly improving our products, motivating people to adopt healthy lifestyles and improving food access and social inclusion. ‘Good for the Planet’ means promoting sustainable supply chains and reducing the amount of CO2 we emit and water we consume during production. As the maker of Italy's #1 brand of pasta, Barilla has been a proud partner with U.S. Ski Team star and three-time World Cup Champion Mikaela Shiffrin since 2012.
