Lemon Asparagus Pasta Salad

Megan O

TOTAL TIME:1 hr

This warm pasta salad is bursting with bright, spring flavors and is covered in a incredible roasted garlic lemon sauce. When it comes to lunch, I like to keep things light, simple, and seasonal. Enjoy the spring flavors of asparagus and spring peas. Asparagus has vitamin K, folate, and fiber, and the spring peas add protein, fiber, and important phytochemicals. I love to pair them with lemon to give them a bright note and roasted garlic for a savory one. Roasting garlic creates a rich, buttery texture with a mild, sweet flavor.

          Directions
          1. To roast garlic, slice the top off of a head of garlic and place it in a large piece of tin foil. Wrap the bottom and sides, leaving the top open.
          2. Drizzle olive oil over the top, then wrap the exposed portion with remaining tin foil. Roast at 400°F for 30–35 minutes. Once cooled, the garlic will be soft like butter and easily squeeze out of the tough shells.
          3. Mix roasted garlic, lemon juice, and salt together to form a sauce. Set aside.
          4. Cook pasta according to package directions. During the last 3 minutes of boiling the pasta, add the asparagus and green peas. Drain and toss with lemon sauce.
          5. Serve warm. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and black pepper, if desired.
