Recipe Ingredients for Asparagus & Pasta Torta

3/4 pound linguine
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1/2 pound asparagus, chopped into half-inch lengths
1 medium red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
4 green onions (scallions), trimmed and chopped into half-inch lengths
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 large eggs
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Asparagus & Pasta Torta

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for about three quarters the recommended time for "al dente" ?? you want it tender, but not finished. Drain and set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 350° F

  3. Heat the oil in a large saute pan. Add the vegetables, salt, and pepper and stir. Saute over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Crack eggs into a large bowl. Whisk in the cream and cheese. Add the cooked pasta and vegetables and stir to mix. Pour the mixture into an ungreased 10"x8" baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, until the top is slightly springy when pressed.

  5. Cut the torta into squares, and serve.
