Recipe Ingredients for Pasta with Vegetables

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound pasta
1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
8 ounces asparagus
8 ounces green beans
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 cup,+chopped scallions
1 cup peas
1/2 cup canned nonfat Milk
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed, shredded

Recipe Directions for Pasta with Vegetables

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil for pasta. Once it is boiling, slide in the pasta, and cook until al dente. Pour 1/8 cup olive oil into a large skillet over medium- high heat, then toss in the garlic cloves. Once the garlic begins to sizzle, slip in the green beans, asparagus, and salt. Pour in cup pasta water, then cover and let steam until crisp- tender, about 4 minutes. Once the asparagus and green beans are crisp- tender, add the grape tomatoes, and cook until they begin to wrinkle, about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the scallions and peas into the skillet. Ladle in about 2 cups pasta water. Bring to a rapid boil, and cook until reduced by about half. When the pasta is al dente, transfer it to the sauce. Pour in the milk and up to cup more pasta water if the sauce is too dense. Bring to a boil, and cook until sauce coats the pasta; toss with the shredded basil. Remove from heat, and toss with the grated cheese.
