Asparagus Pasta Bowl

A great alternative to plain pasta. It’s easy to make and also healthy.

For an even more filling meal, add some grilled or roasted chicken!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups uncooked whole wheat pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups (about 10-12 stalks) asparagus cut into bite-sized pieces, woody ends discarded.
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Pinch of basil and parsley to taste.

Directions:

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Add butter and garlic. Cook until garlic starts to brown, about 3 minutes
  • Add asparagus and wine to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes. Adjust cooking time depending on your doneness preference.
  • Keep warm on lowest heat if pasta is still cooking.
  • Drain the cooked pasta and add to the pan with asparagus & butter. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the pan. Toss until combined.
  • Plate and top with Parmesan cheese.

Serve and enjoy!

Makes about 2 servings.

I estimate this dish to be about 420 calories per serving.
