Ingredients

  • 12 ounces whole wheat- or Jerusalem artichoke-flour spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium (6- to 8-ounce) onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 12 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into half-moons
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt
  • 1 can no-salt-added garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1/4 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

Heat 6-quart saucepot of water to boiling on high. Cook pasta as label directs. Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, heat oil on medium. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Add grape tomatoes; cook 5 minutes or until beginning to soften.
