From the Test Kitchen

With their delicious texture and delightful sweetness, it’s no wonder that fresh peas are snapped up by chefs come spring. When tossed with asparagus and mushrooms, the peas create a springtime medley that pairs perfectly with fresh linguine pasta. A creamy, lemony sauce and a garnish of mint brings this bright, flavorful dish together.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Thinly slice the mushrooms.

Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems.

In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Season with salt and pepper.
