Pasta with Green Asparagus in Red Wine Sauce with Italian Herbs

green asparagus recipe



It's season for asparagus - a great wholesome vegetable loaded with vitamins and without any fat. The green asparagus version has more flavor and bite than white asparagus, and it doesn't get that mushy when cooking, which can happen with white asparagus recipes. In our new vegan pasta recipe below we keep the asparagus slightly crunchy, as that brings out its flavor to the fullest.
