Whole-wheat pasta, such as this shell-shaped chiocciole, is a high-fiber pick. Here, it's combined with other Italian ingredients (arugula and ricotta salata), plus Japanese edamame, to yield a multitude of tastes, textures, and nutrients.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook edamame and asparagus in boiling water until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta; cook until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid; set aside.

  • Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add wine; bring mixture to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add lemon juice, edamame, asparagus, pasta, and 1 cup reserved liquid; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Toss well. Add arugula and tomatoes; toss. Top with ricotta salata and chives. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with lemon zest and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and season with pepper.
