Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves minced garlic

1 red bell pepper, cleaned, seeded and cut into strips (6 ounces)

1/2 pound thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces

1 cup sliced button mushrooms (4 ounces)

1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in 1/2 (6 ounces)

1 cup low-sodium chicken stock

1/2 cup 1 percent milk

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, dissolved in 3 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 large carrot (6 ounces) peeled and sliced into strips with a peeler (about 2 cups carrot ribbons)

3/4 pound whole-wheat linguine

1/2 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated Parmesan

2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves

1/4 cup shredded basil leaves

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Cook garlic until soft, about 1 minute. Add peppers and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, asparagus and tomatoes and cook until softened, an additional 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute more. Add chicken stock, milk, salt and pepper and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook until liquid has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in carrot strips.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Toss pasta with vegetables and sauce. Add pasta water, if necessary, to loosen mixture. Serve garnished with Parmesan, parsley and basil.
