Roasted Asparagus and Radish Pasta
I love using Spring produce like radishes, peas and asparagus in my meals this time of the year! They are all really good served just raw in salads, but for an even more intense flavor I like to roast my veggies! You may have roasted asparagus before but most people don’t think to roast radishes. They are actually really delicious prepared this way and they get sweet when roasted with some of the bitterness going away. The recipe I am sharing with you today combines those two veggies with spring peas in a delicious gluten free pasta that is really simple and easy to make, and so good! Also, this is a balanced healthy meal you can feel good about eating since it contains fiber from all of the veggies and protein (thanks to the quinoa pasta and peas)! It is the perfect thing to make on a weeknight for dinner!

- Preheat the oven to 400F degrees, and oil a sheet pan.
- Toss the asparagus and radishes with just enough olive oil to coat them lightly and spread out on the sheet pan. Sprinkle with sea salt. Place in the oven and roast until the veggies are tender, about 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions, and drain.
- Meanwhile, heat about 2 Tbsp olive oil in a pan, and add the shallots, onions, and garlic. Sautee for about 5 minutes or until the shallots are translucent. Add the white wine and peas and cook for a minute more. Add the pasta and roasted vegetables, and toss all together in the pan. Add sea salt to taste, and pepper, and additional olive oil if it seems like it needs a touch more. Add greens and stir in until just wilted.
