Yummy Summer Pasta Recipe



Ingredients :

  • 1 (13.25 ounce) package whole wheat rotini pasta
  • ½ pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sugar snap peas, ends and strings removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the whole-wheat rotini at a boil until just beginning to become tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in asparagus and snap peas and cook until vegetables are bright green and pasta is tender, about 3 more minutes. Drain pasta and vegetables, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Transfer rotini, asparagus, peas, and the cooking water to a large serving bowl and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until barely golden, 10 to 12 minutes; stir in lemon juice and lemon zest and cook until lemon zest is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Toss onion mixture, Pecorino Romano cheese, and basil into the pasta and vegetables; season with salt and black pepper.
