Hearty and zesty, this is my favorite pasta to make. It's a little bit of work, but comes out as stunning visually as it tastes. It's definitely worth the effort.

Directions

Add 1 Tbs. olive oil and half of the garlic to a sauté pan. Sauté carrots and celery until carrots start to soften. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Remove carrots and celery, and place in large stock pot. Add 1 Tbs. olive oil and half of the garlic to the sauté pan, and sauté bell peppers, jalapenos, zucchini and onion, for about 5-7 minutes. Remove and add to stock pot. Add tomato, onion and garlic sauce, petite diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes to pot. Cook on medium until sauce is just under boiling. Then, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until vegetables reach desired consistency. While sauce is simmering, prepare fettuccine, according to package directions, then strain and return to pot.


Optional Pasta Seasoning: Drizzle 1/4 C. olive oil over fettuccine, while mixing it into the fettuccine, using pasta fork. Continue to mix noodles, while seasoning with garlic salt. Serve primavera sauce over fettuccine, either family style or on individual plates. Garnish with freshly grated parmesan, chopped basil, parsley, and optional red pepper flakes.
