Spring Asparagus, Tomato, & Lemon Pasta

YUM! This recipe is seriously SO fast and easy and healthy oh and delicious πŸ™‚

I sorta made this up- so I don’t have exact measurements because I eye-ball things, but I’m gonna do my best to give good directions.

Ingredients:

  • Pasta(I used fettuccine but you can use whatever you would like)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic- minced
  • 1 pound of Asparagus cut into pieces
  • 1 cup of grape tomatoes-halved(Approx. more or less depending on preference)
  • Fresh lemon Juice(I used the juice from one half of the lemon)
  • Feta Cheese-crumbled

Instructions:

– Bring pot of water to a boil, add a teaspoon or so of salt along with your pasta and cook uncovered for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

– In a large skillet Β heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium/high heat. Once hot, add your minced garlic and sautΓ© for about 3 minutes or until it softens a bit-but be careful not to burn it!

-Add your Asparagus pieces and sautΓ© for 8-10 minutes. Add your tomatoes.

-Once your veggies are heated through and soft enough to your liking, remove the pan from heat and squeeze in your lemon juice.

-Drain pasta and place into skillet with asparagus and tomato mixture. Toss enough to combine and then add your chunks of Feta cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.

See?!?!!? SO EASY and healthy and delicious. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for checking out my blog!

  1. This really looks delish – and really close to a version of risotto that I make, with parmesan or romano cheese in the place of feta, and some shrimp thrown in when I’m living high! Love the asparagus/tomato/lemon combo. You rock. XO, Auntie E

  2. I love simple and fresh! And, having to watch my cholesterol, this dish looks like a great fit. I can just sprinkle a small amount of feta and use my brown rice pasta for the extra fiber. Thanks!
