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.

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.
