About the recipe
Wonderful spring onions and mild trumpet mushrooms are the star in this pasta. Spring onions with their delicate onion flavor go perfectly with mild trumpet mushrooms.
Along with garlic, red onions and bell peppers this pasta is loaded with veggies and packed with flavor.
Spring onions are the tender onions that are harvested in spring before they are allowed to become the larger firmer onion bulb. Both the small bulb and the green leaves can be used in the spring onion.
Spring onions have a mild onion flavor with the freshness of green onion. Spring onions are especially delicious sauted in olive oil and added to eggs, rice, or pasta.

This is a quick week night pasta that’s comforting as it gets. Just chop up the veggies and stir fry with spring onions and garlic. While the veggies are cooking, boil the pasta al dente. Then combine the pasta with the veggies. That’s it. A deliciously healthy spring veggie pasta in as little as 30 minutes.
