School, work, errands… life. It can all be kind of annoying and get in the way of what really matters in life- food! More than ever, we’re looking to get a fresh, healthy meal on the dinner in a hurry. Luckily, Spring, with all it’s beautiful fresh produce is the perfect time to make that happen. Check out or new favorite recipe that all happens in one pot!

Step 1: Put a large pot of water on the stove. Salt the water and bring it to a boil.

Step 2: Carefully place 3 eggs in the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes. Take the eggs out of the pot and place them in a bowl of cold water.

Step 3: Add 1 bunch of chopped asparagus to the boiling water. Cook 1.5-2 minutes (they should be a little firm still) and then place on a plate to cool.

Step 4: Add 1/2 lb of pasta to same pot of boiling watering and cook until just tender. We love Rustichella d’Abruzzo spaghetti, it cooks in about 8 minutes and is perfectly al dente and more flavorful than the average noodle.

Step 5: Drain all but about 1 cup of the pasta water from the pot (leave the cooked pasta and 1 cup of water in the pot). Put the cooked asparagus back in pot with the pasta. Peel the eggs and cut them in half. Place a rack over the pot, and press the eggs through the rack- voila! -chopped eggs.

Step 6: Over low heat, stir the pasta, asparagus and eggs together. Add 1-2 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese. Let everything cook together for 1 minute, then divide among plates. Finish with chopped herbs.
