Snap Pea Spring Pasta with Asparagus and Parmesan.

One of my very favorite things about this time of year is simply shopping what’s in season.

Driving by and grabbing a farm-fresh watermelon off the back of a truck or walking up to the farmers market in our neighborhood on Saturday morning to see what looks good and throw together a meal. When the ingredients are at their peak it’s kind of hard to go wrong.

Pasta is always an easy way to incorporate seasonal vegetables and with kids it’s always a win. This recipe is quick and easy with just a few ingredients and is easily scaleable for a crowd.
