One-Pot Healthy Pasta

I spent last weekend on my own and was after easy and quick recipes I could make in 20 minutes max. On Friday night, I cooked the Asparagus & Mushrooms Omelette (ready in 10 minutes!) and the day after, as I had some asparagus and mushrooms left over in my fridge, I decided to cook them with some pasta and frozen green peas.

Very healthy (no cream!), no meat, just one pot needed and ready in 20 minutes, it was a success! You don’t have to stick to the list of vegetables on the recipe and feel free to replace according to what you have in the fridge (ex. leek, zucchini, etc.).
