Grilled Pasta Primavera Recipe

Summer is one of my favorite seasons to cook in.  Why?  Because of the abundance of all the beautiful, fresh, produce available to us.  Meals like this gorgeous Grilled Pasta Primavera happen quite frequently in my kitchen.  

However, often times those produce go bad before I have a chance to use them.  That's until now.  Today I'm so excited to be partnering with Kroger and Rubbermaid to show you how their new Rubbermaid® FreshWorks™storage containers can help keep your produce fresher, longer.  With various sizes available to accommodate all sorts of produce, a crisper tray to keep your produce up from excess moisture, and the new patented FreshVent™, the FreshWorks™Storage Containers keep your vegetables fresher up to 80% longer (*Based on strawberries in FreshWorks™ containers vs. store packaging. Results may vary depending upon produce and use.)!  That's AMAZING! #SeeHowFreshWorks

I purchased my containers from my local Kroger with this awesome $2 off coupon from Ibotta along with all of the produce I needed for my Grilled Pasta Primavera Recipe.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!

Grilled Pasta Primavera Recipe:
*Prep Time: 10 min *Cook Time: 15 min *Difficulty: Easy *Servings: 4-6


  • 1 lb Penne Pasta
  • 16 oz Brussel Sprouts, halved
  • 16 oz Cremini Mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, large dice
  • 1 Red Onion, Sliced
  • 1 Yellow Squash, sliced and quartered
  • 1 c Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 c Chicken Stock
  • 2-3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • Fresh Chopped Parsley

As soon as I got home from Kroger, I began cleaning my produce and prepping them for storage.  Of course you don't have to do this, but I find this saves me precious time when it comes time for cooking.  

I washed, trimmed, and halved my brussel sprouts.

Then I wiped my mushrooms off with a damp towel, took the stems off, and quartered them.

After that, I placed them into the Freshworks containers to go into the fridge.

The next day I placed all of my prepared vegetables into a resealable bag.

I added the olive oil,

teaspoon of salt,

half teaspoon of pepper,

and teaspoon of Italian seasoning.

I sealed the bag and moved all the vegetables around until they are coated in the marinade.

Next I placed this no boil, no drain pasta into my pan.

I added the chicken stock (mine is unsalted),

half teaspoon of salt,

and half teaspoon of pepper.

Bring the pasta to a boil and let it cook for 10 minutes.

While my pasta is cooking I will grill my vegetables.
I have this neat grill pan that I used, but foil will work great here if you don't have one.

Let cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Look at all of those gorgeous char marks.

Now add the grilled vegetables to the cooked pasta.

Toss everything together.

Add the shredded Parmesan cheese and...

fresh chopped parsley.

Give it another toss and you are ready to eat!

Look at all of those vibrant colors!  I don't know about you, but I just want to grab that fork and dive right in!  Personally I like to drizzle a little balsamic glaze over mine, but that is up to you.  Because of my Rubbermaid Freshworks Containers, I can #SeeHowFreshWorks with this delicious Grilled Pasta Primavera.  I know you are going to love it so give it a try tonight!  And if you would like more information on these amazing containers, check out Rubbermaid's site <<HERE>>.

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,

    1. Thank you! That is the beauty of summer produce. It's too pretty NOT to eat all that yummy goodness!

  5. Not often you see sprouts in a pasta dish but my husband loves them so will be making this for sure!

    1. I feel like sprouts are a totally under used vegetable. They really "beef" up vegetarian dishes.

  6. Have you tried cooking on a grill pan on the stove?
