I generally don’t need my food to be matchy-matchy, but in this case, I don’t mind one bit. This pasta dish has sooo many greens that give the noodles a vibrant color and super flavorful taste (well that, and the cup of parmesan, duh). Start with frozen peas, which hot take: are the undisputed BEST frozen vegetable on the planet. For the snow peas, look for the ones already sealed in a microwaveable bag—that means those pesky little fibrous threads have been removed. But if you can’t find the pre-threaded variety, you can remove them yourself (it’s kind of hypnotically relaxing). And with the snapping asparagus, well, all you have to do is bend and snap.
