Caroline Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and husband Albert
Hungry? We are. That always seems to happen whenever Caorline Manzo rolls out a new recipe. This time, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is offering a taste of her pasta primavera on her blog:

Start by rounding up these ingredients:

1 zucchini, sliced
1 bunch of asparagus, sliced
1 package of sliced mushrooms
2-3 diced plum tomatoes
2-3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 pound of rigatoni pasta
4-5 tablespoons of olive oil
Parmesan cheese
Salt and fresh ground black pepper

"Sauté the garlic in the olive oil on medium heat," Caroline writes on her site. "Add the zucchini, tomatoes, asparagus, and mushrooms. Cook until vegetables are cooked through."

Caroline guides you the rest of the way on her site. And if you have some extra zucchini in the fridge, you can also pull up her shredded fried zucchini recipe.

Hi Caorline loved this recipe, family loved this recipe u are 100% a true mother that cooks, acts and cares for family. BOY OH BOY I love ur control and class u r definitly a role model of a mother for family . thank u and ur spouse for being such wonderful true parents and friends. Wishing u the best on the next season, glad to c u stand up and say no more. Be true to yourself and what family values and friendship values are all about. I know ur heart hurts praying that ur sister gets unconfused and realizes that she is also dealing with a monster of a person. I really mean is yes Teresa is a monster, trying to a protector of her denial and stuff. Yes I understand she feels abandon, yes I understand her stupidity, what I don't understand and wont tolerate is that she doesnt learn to accept things or at least try to change herself. I know we all must change to be in her world or else its everyone else is wrong never her. Love true class, respect and human caring. Teresa really doesn't see or understand this. Brain dead. Heart dead. Watched the reunion part one and two and still disappointed in her continued denial of really getting down and saying ok im wrong i truely want to change help me. When she has attempted to try and change its not u its not the other its her Teresa herself that prevents that from happening and yet u all hand in their forgive and try and live another day. U all have my prayers, but remember, GOD help them that help themselves, Teresa I dont know, the LORDS words also says, if they or those are unreachable, they pass them by and move on with goodness and love and forgiveness. keep yr heart clean and go on. Deborah

Hello Caorline: Had to recheck the spelling of ur name to make sure I HAD IT CORRECT. I do not comment on the internet because I find it incorrect for behavior and confidentiality, but I must at this time do so. I am 59 yrs old soon to be 60. I am extremely blessed from above to have a family and good roots from my family to have one especially in these times when culture, classes of people and human love and compassion seems to be fading into the distance. What I mean by this is: My world of growing up and having foundations of belief, behavior and love has changed in this world that is out there, has changed so much so that I am thankful for the old fashion ways my parents instilled and taught our family. To this day we all love and communicate and talk and yield and love and never do or say things to hurt one another. See my parents taught us well. Even during their individual last days I can honestly say my parents never say, never heard, never sAWWWWWW us their children not knowing or practicing those very values of FAMILY LOVE AND RESPECT. and yes that encompassed all those that began to marry in the family become the family and be loved by the FAMILY. I can honestly say I am proud of U and the girls for u all trying to practice those very values on the REALITY SHOW. I will continue to pray for Teresa, she needs alot of help. Again continue to be ur self I love u for it. God Bless u and ur family and all the others. Signed A real person

Caroline, thanks for the wonderful recipe, at least we know its coming from you and not some stolen recipe from god knows who, from a cook book name stolen from Bethany and ghost written by, "who knows". Dinner anytime with you! Looking forward to seeing you, Jacqueline, Mellisa, and Kathy on Season 4. :-)

You should try Parmigiano-Reggiano like Teresa uses in her recipes.

I am surprised you just don't bully the pasta and it makes itself.
