Frequently Asked Questions

What type of pasta should I use?

The classic pasta primavera dish uses angel hair for its noodles. However, most contemporary recipes use penne pasta noodles. Domino’s own version of the dish also uses penne noodles. If you want to stay true to their version, you may use the same kind for a more faithful version. Still, you’re free to experiment with this recipe. You can try other kinds of pasta, or use the ones that are currently available to you.

Can I use other cheeses?

The combination of Parmesan and Asiago cheese is what gives this recipe its iconic Domino’s pasta primavera taste. So, we recommend that you stick to using those cheeses in case you want to copy the dish. But remember, we’re all about experimenting here! So if you want to change things up with the recipe, then by all means go ahead!
