Baked Asparagus with Kamut Pasta Spirals
Its amazing to know the number of varieties that one gets for Pasta nowadays. I am not talking about the shapes of the pasta but the kind of flours used to make the pasta - wholegrain, sprouted, wheat, buckwheat, kamut etc etc! Mind blowing I must say. Its been ages since I bought the original make - why go for it when you have so many yet to be finished! The last time I did my pantry check, I found I had some unused Kamut pasta spirals left. My fridge had some left over Asparagus from my soup of 2 days back.

Thought of baking the asparagus crispy and crunchy and making a simple, quick and easy pasta dinner for us. The recipe is very fast to make with minimal steps and it is one healthy meal too. Nuts, Vegetables, wholegrain and healthy fats. Nothing to bargain isn't it. The recipe may sound lengthy but different steps can be done simultaneously thus saving time. Actually in totality, I finish this recipe in about 15 minutes. While baking the asparagus, Pasta can be cooked on the side. At the same time, you can start the actual cooking process. Now to the recipe, this is how I made it

    OMG! I actually made a Kumut Spirals Pasta with Broccoli, Red Peppers, Green Peppers, and Yellow Onions. I definitely have to share my recipe since this is my first time using Kamut. I cooked the above ingredients in Olive Oil until tender. I than made fresh tomato sauce by blending 8 tomato’s in the blender. After blended I added the sauce into the skillet with the veggies and Oyster Mushrooms. I must add that I’ve never cared for Mushrooms until I tried the Oyster Mushroom. They are delicious! I let all the ingredients simmer until sauce became a think sauce. I added Sea Salt, Thyme, and Oregano for taste. Again Delicious!
