    Eating Seasonally:
    Asparagus, Pea, and Avocado Pasta

    Experience the bright, fresh taste of spring by using local asparagus, peas, and herbs in this quick and easy recipe that comes together in about 30 minutes!

    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1 lb. asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
    • 1 lb. sugar snap peas
    • 1 lb. bow-tie pasta
    • 4 Tbs. butter
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint, parsley, or basil
    • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or pecorino cheese, plus more for serving, if desired
    In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook asparagus until bright green, about 2 minutes. Add snap peas; cook 30 seconds. With a slotted spoon or a small sieve, scoop out vegetables; transfer to a bowl.

    Return water to a boil; add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta water; set pasta aside in colander.

    In pasta pot, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add asparagus, snap peas, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, cooked pasta, avocado, herbs, cheese, and reserved pasta water. Toss to combine; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with additional cheese, if desired.
