Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 Pound(s) Asparagus, stems peeled and
1 Teaspoon(s) Olive oil
6 Quart(s) Water
1 Tablespoon(s) Salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon
1 Pound(s) Bowtie pasta
1 Teaspoon(s) Butter
3 Ounce(s) Fresh morels, halved and
1 Tablespoon(s) Minced shallots
1 Cup(s) Green Peas, Fresh Or Frozen
1 Cup(s) Snow peas, trimmed
1 Cup(s) Sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/4 Cup(s) Vegetable broth or water
1 Tablespoon(s) Fresh marjoram, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 Cup(s) Freshly grated parmesan
1/4 Cup(s) Thinly sliced green onions
Makes 4 servings Notes: If it's too early for fresh peas in your area,
substitute frozen. If you don't have a grill, roast the asparagus in a
450-degree oven. Directions: Toss asparagus in oil and grill or roast
until tender. If grilling, use a narrow rack or pin asparagus spears
together with wooden skewers to keep them from falling through the
grill rack. Slice into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Bring the water
to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt; add pasta and cook until tender
to the bite. Meanwhile, heat butter in a large saute pan over medium
heat until it begins to turn brown. Add morels and shallots; cook just
until shallots are translucent. Add the 3 varieties of peas, the broth
and marjoram. Season to taste with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and
the pepper. Cover and cook until peas are barely tender. Uncover, add
asparagus, and cook until asparagus is hot and peas are tender. Drain
pasta. Toss with vegetables in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with
cheese and green onions; serve immediately. Calories: 590, Protein: 25
