Easy-peasy dishes for springtime

Cook them with grains for a side dish, toss them into a salad or incorporate them into pasta dishes.

2½ teaspoons coarse sea or kosher salt plus more for pasta water

Using a slotted spoon or wire skimmer, remove the asparagus and rinse spears under cold running water to halt the cooking.

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water; drain, reserving some of the pasta water, and toss with olive oil to keep from sticking.

Add the cooked pasta to the vegetables, adding a splash or two of the reserved pasta water if necessary to separate the pasta; stir gently to combine.
