Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 tsp olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic
    1/2 pound fresh asparagus, chopped into 1 inch pieces
    1 medium red bell pepper, diced
    1 cup garbanzo beans
    1 small can diced unsalted tomatoes
    1/4 cup fresh parsley
    1/2 pound whole wheat short pasta (I used corkscrews)

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions. Saute onion and garlic with oil in medium saute pan. When soft, add asparagus and pepper, stirring frequently. Add Garbanzo beans and stir to combine (mine were frozen, so I stirred until they thawed). Add diced tomatoes. Simmer for about 10 minutes until all are incorporated. Top with fresh chopped parsley and stir to combine. Toss with hot pasta. Makes 4 lunch sized servings.
