Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the fusilli

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the fusilli and cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
While the water heats and the fusilli cooks, prepare the vegetables.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice the red onion.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
  • Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus; cut the asparagus into 2-inch pieces.
  • Rinse the white beans.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for the dressing.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, garlic, and asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, peas, and half the parsley and cook until the beans are warmed through and the peas are just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. While the vegetables cook, prepare the parsley-yogurt dressing.

3

Make the parsley-yogurt dressing

  • Zest the lemon.
  • Juice the lemon.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and the remaining parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Assemble the salad

In a large bowl, combine the fusilli and vegetables. Stir in the arugula and feta. Drizzle with as much parsley-yogurt dressing as you like and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fusilli salad to individual bowls and serve the remaining dressing on the side.
