Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Pan
  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a nonstick baking sheet. Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to boil. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Slice asparagus diagonally into 1" lengths. Slice radish into thin rounds, then half-moons. Trim and peel and cut carrot into ¼" slices on the bias. Stem and slice basil into thin strips. Stem, core, and slice red bell pepper into ½" strips. Thinly slice green onions on an angle, separating white and green parts.

  • 2

    Roast the Vegetables

    Arrange asparagus, carrots, and red bell pepper pieces on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and season with a pinch of salt. Toss to coat evenly. Place in oven and roast until crisp tender, about 9-12 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

  • 3

    Cook the Pasta

    Add gemelli pasta to boiling water. Cook for 7-9 minutes, or until al dente (pasta should still have a hint of firmness.) Measure out and reserve ½ cup of pasta water for finishing sauce. Drain pasta, return to pot, and set aside.

  • 4

    Prepare the Sauce

    Place a medium pan over medium heat. Add white parts of green onions and evaporated milk to pan and cook until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • 5

    Assemble the Pasta

    Add roasted vegetables and cooked pasta to pan with sauce and toss to coat evenly. If sauce is too thick, add 1 Tbsp. of reserved pasta water at a time to thin it out. Add peas, radishes, Parmesan cheese (reserving some for garnish), and sliced basil (reserving a bit for garnish). Toss to combine. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Plate the Dish
