Spring Pasta Salad - A Great Healthy BBQ Side Dish

Just because a barbecue is all about the grill, doesn’t mean the sides can’t shine. This pasta salad makeover combines traditional elements like whole-wheat shells and adds fresh, spring staples like asparagus, fava beans and fragrant dill. The lemon and oil-based dressing keeps it light and ensures it can stand up to the outdoors longer than its mayonnaise-based counterparts. Plus, you can make this a gluten-free recipe if you opt for gluten-free pasta shells

Ingredients:

1 lb whole-wheat shells (or gluten-free shells)
1 bunch (about 1 lb.) asparagus
1 cup shelled fava beans (about 2 lbs unshelled beans)*
2 tbsp + 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1/3 cup dry white wine
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice plus 1 tbsp lemon zest
1 oz arugula (about 1.5 cups)
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp sliced fresh ricotta salata**
2 tbsp fresh dill
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

*Frozen fava beans can be substituted

**Ricotta salata is a hard, aged and slightly salty version of ricotta cheese

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)

Berkey Water

Instructions

1. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta; cook until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid; set aside.

2. Bring medium pot of water to a boil. Blanch asparagus by immersing it in the boiling water. Cook for 3 minutes. Add shelled fava beans and boil for an additional 1 minute.

3. Drain and plunge the beans and asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking. Remove tough outer skins from beans by pinching the outer skin between your thumb and forefinger. Discard skins. Slice asparagus into 1-inch pieces. In large skillet heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add red onion. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 4 minutes. Add wine; bring mixture to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half.

4. Remove from heat and add lemon juice, fava beans, asparagus, pasta shells, and 1 cup reserved pasta liquid and toss. Add arugula and tomatoes; toss. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Mix in lemon zest, ricotta, dill, salt and pepper.

5. Refrigerate and serve cooled. Keeps for 3-5 days.

Makes 12 servings.
