Pea Shoots and Asparagus Pasta Salad

Yes, I know what some of you may be thinking - another Pasta Salad! but you will be pleased to note that this one does actually have some homegrown ingredients - Pea shoots.
The pea shoots and pea stems and leaves are all from the garden, not the asparagus - that came from the supermarket. 
Again, its not an overly complicated recipe.  Sauteed a couple of cloves of garlic in some good olive oil, and then stirred in all the ingredients, most of which were raw (except the pasta and asparagus).  Seasoned it with salt and pepper and there you go - all ready.

The pea shoots pasta salad is not heavy in pea flavour, its delicate in flavour.  And to punctuate the green, I stirred in some raw diced red pepper for colour and crunch.  

Another lunch prepared for busy working week days at home. 
I am sharing this Pea Shoots and Asparagus Pasta Salad with Soup, Salad and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen.

  2. It's too hot here to grow aspargus, or I need to figure the best time for planting. Lovely salad. I just saw you linked up with Deb for Souper Sunday while I was there.

    1. Thanks VegHog, It was good, hoping to make pesto with the remaining pea shoots as some of the stems are getting a bit tough

    1. Thanks Johanna. I try to change the ingredients, but the base is often the same. It's soup this week. D will be putting on some bread in the bread machine for the next two working days lunch.
