Asparagus-Mushroom Primavera

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Snap off and discard woody bases of fresh asparagus. Rinse. Bias-slice asparagus into 1 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and ground black pepper; cook and stir for 30 seconds.
  3. Add asparagus, mushrooms, wine, and salt to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, uncovered, for 4 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in butter.
  4. Drain pasta; add pasta to vegetables in skillet. Toss gently to combine. Garnish with basil and crushed red pepper.

From the Test Kitchen

Lunch Tomorrow:

Make all of the pasta according to packaged directions. Toss any leftover pasta with light Italian salad dressing, cooked chicken breast, fresh vegetables, and fresh basil for a spring pasta salad.

Cost-Saving Tip: If you are not a wine-drinker it would be silly to by a bottle of wine, only to use 1/4 cup. Use reduced-sodium chicken broth for the liquid instead of wine.

Convenience Tip: Rather than pealing and mincing the garlic cloves yourself, you can use 2 teaspoons of bottled minced garlic- a small jar found in the produce section.

Substitution Tip: Take this dish from weekday to holiday by using exotic mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini, and/or oyster.
