For many of us, pasta salad may call to mind some insipid macaroni doused in mayo and tossed with a forgettable mix of vegetables. We've flipped the script with our version that uses whole wheat spaghetti tossed in a delicious strawberry vinaigrette for a heart-healthy take that's light, fresh, and just what you want to eat on a warm evening. We add roasted asparagus, crunchy snap peas, toasted walnuts, and top it off with tangy bleu cheese. This isn't the perfunctory pasta salad you serve as a side, this is the star of the show.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Roast Vegetables

    Mince garlic. Trim woody ends off asparagus and cut into 1" lengths at an angle. Peel and halve shallot. Slice half the shallot into thin strips (julienne) and finely dice other half. Place asparagus, half the garlic, and julienned shallots on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Roast 10-12 minutes, or until asparagus is tender. Remove from oven and cool at least 5 minutes. Core Roma tomato and cut into 1/2" dice. Lay sugar snap peas on cutting board and halve lengthwise, exposing peas inside. Rinse strawberries under warm water if still frozen. Mince strawberries.

  2. 2

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add 1 tsp. salt and spaghetti to pot and cook 8-10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain in colander and return to pot. Toss with 2 tsp. olive oil to prevent spaghetti from sticking together.

  3. 3

    Toast the Walnuts

    While spaghetti is cooking, heat a small pan over medium heat. Add walnuts to dry, hot pan and toast, stirring regularly, 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and "nutty" smelling. Be careful, walnuts can burn easily.

  4. 4

    Make the Vinaigrette

    In a large mixing bowl, combine strawberries, Champagne vinegar, remaining garlic, finely diced shallots, honey, 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together thoroughly.

  5. 5

    Toss the Salad

    In bowl containing vinaigrette, add cooked pasta, sugar snap peas, Roma tomatoes, and roasted vegetables. Toss to combine.
