Recipe of the Week: Asparagus Pasta Salad

Spring is officially here! Lots of new vegetables are starting to grow and one of the easiest to eat is asparagus! Its crunchy and green tasting when its raw, like fresh peas, and cooks quickly on the grill, in the oven, or in a frying pan. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you can find it growing wild! Otherwise, lots of farmers markets and grocery shops will have it for the next month or so.

Because it cooks quickly and tastes great, asparagus makes cooking for friends and family a little easier. Today’s recipe is a choose-your-own-adventure recipe: it has pasta, but you can choose any shape you like, asparagus because its tasty, and whatever other tasty spring veggies you have or like to eat! Be sure to choose a rainbow when you can! More colors means more vitamins for your body to use while you run, jump, and play in the warm spring weather.
