In today’s fast-paced world, sometimes instant flavor is mandatory.  In this video, we give you 3 quick steps you can use to easily combine your all-time-favorite flavors opting for healthier options and preparation methods without sacrificing flavor or time. You can also skip past the videos and use the 'old school' written recipe guide to save even more time!

Step I – Sautéing Veggies

Chop turkey bacon while pan and water heats; slice mushrooms as turkey bacon sizzles; add mushrooms and touch of oil blending gently; chop onions and mince garlic as mushrooms soften; deglaze pan with red wine; add onions and then garlic;

Heat: Medium to High

Total Cook Time: 6 to 7 Minutes

 

Step II – Building Your Base

Start pasta; slice off 1-2 oz. of Red Roux and melt/mix in pan; deglaze pan with red wine; turn-off pasta adding a little of the water to your base;

Heat: Medium to High

Total Cook Time: 7 to 9 Minutes

 

Step III – Adding Your Featured Ingredients

Chop and mix in fresh asparagus; immediately turn down heat; add cream (you can also add before asparagus); add pasta, garnish and turn off heat.

Heat: Low

Total Cook Time: 2 to 3 Minutes

 

 NOTE: Turn down heat allowing asparagus to warm through, lessening heat exposure in order to retain nutritional value.
