Ingredients

  • 1 pound - whole Wheat pappardelle Pasta
  • 1 cup - silken Tofu
  • 2 tsp - Egg replacer powder (like EnerG)
  • 2 tbsp - Olive oil
  • 1 - medium Onion (sliced thin)

How to Make Pappardelle Pasta with Green Peppers

  • Remove the tough stems from the asparagus spears and cut into half inch pieces. If using frozen asparagus, thaw thoroughly and then cut. Boil water in a large pot, add 2 tbsp.
  • Add the pasta and cook according to the instructions until al dente.
  • Simultaneously, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a saucepan. Add onions and green peppers and toss.
  • Add half of the black pepper and salt. Cook until barely tender for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the pasta to the saucepan, stir together and cook on low flame to keep the pasta warm.
  • In another saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil.
  • Add the asparagus and the remaining black pepper.
  • Cook while stirring until the asparagus is fairly tender (it should not get mushy).
  • In a bowl, mix tofu and egg replacer powder and beat it to mix and smooth any lumps.
  • Add to the asparagus and allow it to settle for a minute. Then toss around for about two minutes.
  • Add the asparagus frittata to the pasta and toss to coat the noodles.
