Pasta with Artichoke Hearts, Peas, & Sun-Dried Tomatoes with Butterbean and White Asparagus Puree

Cook and Prep Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4

You Need

  • 1 container Bean-Based Pasta (your choice, I prefer a longer pasta)
  • 1 container Artichoke Hearts, quartered, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small can Butterbeans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 container White Asparagus, rinsed and drained, chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • 10 oz. Peas, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup Sundried Tomatoes, rinsed and drained, chopped
  • 1 White Onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 head Garlic, minced
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black Pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Rinse and chop the produce accordingly.  Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Make the puree. Set a pan to medium heat, and add 1 tbsp. olive oil.  Once hot, add onion and cook until translucent, 4-5 minutes.  Then, add beans, and cook until warmed through.  Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Add beans and onions to a blender.  Add 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Pulse until smooth, adding more oil or water if needed.  Season with salt and pepper, and set aside for plating.
  4. Make the sauce.  Return your pan to a burner set to medium heat again, and add 1 tbsp. olive oil.  Once hot, add garlic, and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant, stirring frequently to avoid burning.  Then, add artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and toss to combine.  Cook for 2-3 minutes.  Until softened and fragrant.  Then, add peas, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Toss to combine.  Cook until peas have warmed through.
  5. Add pasta to your pan with the sauce and toss to combine.
  6. Make your plate.  Place your puree on the bottom on the dish.  Top with pasta.  Garnish with chopped parsley.  Enjoy!
