NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 pound penne rigate
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups fresh shelled peas
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed, freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Place penne in a large pot of rapidly boiling, salted water. When pasta is about 2 minutes from being done, add the asparagus and peas and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the pasta and asparagus are cooked. Reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid. Drain pasta and return to the pot. Place the pot over low heat.

  • To the pasta and veggies, add only as much water as is necessary to create a nice "sauce". Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and add the garlic, cheese, olive oil, and oregano and toss to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
