I used thin, egg noodles here, but spaghetti, angel hair, or fettuccine would all work as well.

Recipe Ingredients for Spring Pasta

2 cup, chopped Broccoli
1 cup asparagus
8 ounces whole wheat spaghetti
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 cup Organic Pea Shoots
2 cups Chopped Kale
1/4 cup chopped herbs
1/4 cup Parmesan, Shredded Cheese
1/2 avocado

Recipe Directions for Spring Pasta

  1. In a small bowl crack the eggs and beat them really well with a pinch of salt.

  2. In a big skillet melt the oil and butter over medium high heat. If you're using a vegetable that might take longer to cook than others, add those to the pan - for example, asparagus or broccoli. Add a couple pinches of salt, stir, cover, and cook for a couple minutes. Until the vegetables are bright, and just cooked. Now stir in anything that just needs a quick flash of cooking - in this case pea greens, but chopped greens would go in at this point if you're using those. Stir, and cook just until tender - a minute or so. Pull about 1/3 of the vegetables out of the pan and set them aside.

  3. Now, add the pasta to the skillet, and toss well. Once the pasta is hot, turn down the heat, wait a moment, then quickly stir in the eggs. Stir well, then cover the pan, remove from heat, and let everything sit for a minute. Uncover, give everything another toss, the egg should be cooked through. Taste, and adjust the seasoning before dividing between two plates. Top with the reserved vegetables, and some chopped avocado.
