Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 4 cups penne pasta
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped smoked trout or salmon (8 oz/250 g)

Snap off woody ends of asparagus; cut stalks into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Set aside.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 7 minutes. Add asparagus stalks and peas; cook until pasta is tender but firm, about 2 minutes. Reserving 1 cup (250 mL) of the cooking liquid, drain and return pasta mixture to pot.
