Creamy Asparagus Vegetarian Pasta Recipe

Hi Guys! So, tonight I came home and thought, as we all have…”Hmm, what in the world am I going to make for dinner? Ughh”! That total weeknight dinner dread. I opened the fridge and I saw this bunch of asparagus I needed to use up. So, that was it, the main ingredient! I decided to whip up a quick creamy pasta (gluten and meat free) dish.

Here is what you will need and how it’s done.

Ingredients:

  • Tofurkey Veggie Italian Sausage (2 links)
  • Onion chopped
  • Garlic minced
  • Mushrooms sliced
  • Asparagus chopped
  • Frozen Peas
  • Half Lemon
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • Goat Cheese ( I used a small crumbled container)
  • Parmesan Cheese (I used about 1/4 cup)
  • Cheddar Cheese (as much as I wanted ;)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Penne Pasta (I used Quinoa Pasta)

How it’s Done:

  • In sauce pan, add olive oil and onion. Cover and simmer for a couple of minutes
  • Add garlic, tofurkey sausage and asparagus to sauce pan. Allow to cook for a minute or so.
  • Add frozen peas and mushrooms to sauce pan. Squeeze  half lemon over top of mixture. Let heat and cook for a minute or so.
  • Next add pasta, milk, cheeses and salt and pepper. Stir and add milk to mixture if starting to stick to pan.
  • Voila, Done!
