Dr. Danielle Asparagus Pasta

Ingredients 

5.7 oz whole wheat pasta (or pasta of choice)

5.3 oz fresh asparagus

½ cup almond milk (unsweetened)

1 pinch of fine salt

½ tsp garlic powder

salted water to cook pasta

Directions

Step 1 

Put a pot of salted water on the stove to cook the pasta. Clean the asparagus and remove the hardest part. Cut them into rounds and put them in a saucepan with the almond milk, the pinch of salt and the garlic powder.

Step 2

Place the saucepan on the stove and bring to a boil. Decrease the heat and let the asparagus cook, stirring often while the milk thickens. Once the water in the pot reaches a boil, pour in the pasta and let it cook.

Step 3

When the pasta is cooked, drain it and pour it into the saucepan with the asparagus. Let the pasta take on flavor for a couple of minutes, then turn off the heat and serve immediately.

Pro Tip:

In the photo, I used gluten-free pasta made with corn, buckwheat and quinoa. This asparagus pasta tastes even better when served with a generous sprinkle of grated (no) cheese.
