1 bunch (about 1 lb) asparagus, chopped into bite-sized pieces

4 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly-sliced

Directions

TO MAKE THE PASTA SALAD:

1Cook the pasta in a large stockpot of salted water until it is al dente, according to package directions. Drain pasta and set aside.

2Meanwhile, as the pasta water is heating and the pasta is cooking, heat the Colavita olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.

3Add chopped garlic, and sauté until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus and artichokes, season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

4Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the the asparagus is tender but still slightly crisp on the inside. Remove from heat and set aside.

5In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, asparagus mixture, artichoke hearts, Parmesan and pine nuts.

6Drizzle evenly with the lemon basil vinaigrette, then toss to combine.

7Serve immediately, garnished with extra Parmesan if desired. Or cover and refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
