Multi-coloured and Multi-veggie Pasta
This quick and simple pasta dish is full of veggie goodness! Make sure you prepare all the vegetables first and chop into small diced pieces before you begin. The deliciousness of olive oil in Bertolli with Butter is perfect for sweating all the vegetables and its creaminess is ideal at the end to bind the dish together, as well as adding shine to the flat surfaces of the superb pasta cone shapes that combine really well with all the lovely fresh summery vegetables. To reinvigorate the mid-week staple, Bertolli with Butter has partnered with Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo and artisan pasta makers Pasta & Pasta to create the Bertollini, a limited-edition pasta shape, listed exclusively on Delicatezza.
