This simple Peas and Asparagus Pasta recipe is ideal to enjoy any time for lunch or dinner.

The great thing about this vegetarian meal is that you can serve it as the main entree or as a side dish, or add in some protein. It only takes about 30 minutes to whip up, which makes it perfect for those needing an easy meal solution.

When reaching for seasoning, you only need a few staples at hand to create a flavorful meal. One I like to use is La Baleine Essentiel Sea Salt, it’s lower in sodium without sacrificing flavor and makes a great addition to seasoning your meals.

I’ve recently become a fan of La Baleine Essentiel, it is the world’s first low sodium salt directly from the sea, with 50% less sodium when compared to everyday table salt. It is truly set apart as the perfect sea salt choice with the bonus of added calcium, potassium, and magnesium, all while maintaining that natural sea salt flavor that makes your food taste gorgeous.

I always believe in making each recipe your own, if you prefer certain pasta over another or vegetables and proteins, then definitely make your substitutions. Recipes are a great starting point and are used as guidance, but as with this recipe, you can make it your own with a variety of combinations.
