Ingredients

  • 4 cups of Easter shaped pasta
  • 6 cups of boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cooking oil
  • 2 cups of mixed frozen veggies
  • 1 cup of frozen asparagus tips

  • 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt
  • 1 pinch of dried oregano
  • 1 pinch of black pepper
  • 3 sprigs of fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta for 5-7 minutes on boiling salted water with cooking oil to avoid sticking. When the pasta is ready temper with cold water and strain.

  • Then add the cooked veggies to the pasta and fold. Finish with chopped fresh parsley and serve hot.
  • You can garnish the spring pasta with parmesan cheese if desired.
  • The spring pasta dish can also be a nice complement to a meal served alongside a baked ham, rotisserie chicken or a beef or lamb roast and a fresh salad.
