Spinach and Asparagus Bowtie Pasta

I have a bad habit of buying too many fresh vegetables at one time at the local warehouse store. We eat most of them but sometimes we just can’t get through the huge box of spinach or the 2 pound bag of asparagus in one week. Situations like this call for some imagination! In comes Spinach and Asparagus Bowtie Pasta!

This past Saturday I was hungry. I had lots of vegetables that needed some attention and I wanted pasta. Knowing that if there were vegetables in the pasta it would be a healthier meal, this was an easy decision. The vegetables take up space in the bowl so you eat less of the carby pasta but you still get to eat pasta. And that’s the best part!

Easy One Pot Meal

Spinach and Asparagus Bowtie Pasta¬†cooks the vegetables and pasta all together in one pot. It’s so easy to throw together and¬† cooks up in no time. There’s not one bit of oil or fat added but it’s so good even without that. I thought I might have to add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil when it was done, but it didn’t need it. It was perfect just as it was!

I hope you enjoy!
