Monday’s are usually stressful for most of us and because of extremely chaotic weather, the past few weeks have been even more stressful.

We are either stuck at home due to rain/ice or just about that depressing winter blues, that making a fresh meal for the entire family seems like next to impossible.

And I feel ‘Pasta’ is one such recipe that saves us all many times!!

Whether its a simple tossed spaghetti or with added meatballs or just a quick shrimp pasta, whatever be it, carbs definitely helps calm those stressed nerves and hungry tummy.

Lemon Asparagus Pasta with Peas ingredients

But what if you want to have pasta and also be low-carb 🙂 Well, I recently found Glutenfree Chickpea past and seriously, I’ve not looked back since then!

For our Lemon Asparagus Pasta with Peas & Tomatoes, I’m using these Main Ingredients:

Glutenfree Pasta (I’m using fettuccine but you can use any pasta)

Fresh Asparagus 

Some Frozen Peas & Baby Tomatoes (Let’s make it a healthy mix)

Lemon (of course – we are using both juice and rind)

Cashew Milk (for some creaminess but you can skip this if you want)

Once, the ingredients are there, the recipe comes together in 25 minutes. 

You simply make the pasta as per package instructions and keep it aside.

Then saute the veggies, add seasoning, cooked pasta and toss everything together to combine.

Once everything is mixed, transfer to serving bowl and enjoy. Yup, the recipe is that easy-peasy.

BUT, we always have some ‘Pro-Tips’ for you which I have been following and here they are.

Pro Tips: 

Always add a tsp of oil once you have strained your cooked pasta to keep it untangled.

Always store 1/4 to 1/2 cup pasta water to add in the recipe for that extra flavor.

Saute the veggies on a medium-high flame, this helps them cook quickly and yet keeps them crunchy.

To add extra flavor, toss the pasta in ‘Herbed Oil’ just before serving. This adds that almost restaurant-style meal at home.

If you want the pasta to look plated as restaurants, use ‘TONGS’ to put them in a plate. (seriously try it and see the difference).

    This looks like such a great pasta dish. One thing I love about pasta is that you can make those heavy, hearty meals, but then also light and airy dishes like this one. Looks so good.
