Ingredients:

  • 8 Ounces Orichette Pasta – about half a box
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  •  ½ Cup Dry White Wine (I use Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Any dry white wine works, though. I’d avoid the sweeter whites like Moscato since it will leave the dish less savory than intended.)
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic (Fresh or jarred, choose your own adventure)
  •  1 Small White Onion, chopped
  •  Juice of ½ large Lemon
  •  3 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (I prefer Earth Balance brand)
  • About 10 spears of Asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into about 1.5 inch pieces. If asparagus is unavailable, broccoli works as well
  • 1 Cup Frozen Peas

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta according to packaging directions, adding salt to water. Drain.
  2. When the pasta is just about done cooking, begin the white wine sauce. It comes together in a flash, so you want the pasta to be just about finished cooking before you start it.
  3. Melt vegan butter in a pan. Brown onions in the butter, about five minutes or so. Add garlic and allow to brown, about 1 minute. Add white wine, lemon juice, peas and asparagus. Allow to cook about 3 minutes or so. You want the asparagus to have snap left in it. Stir in drained pasta.
  4. If you want carb overload, enjoy with a chunky bread to sop up the white wine sauce.
