This dish is a joyful tour through the late spring produce department at PCC. After all, primavera does mean spring! Tender asparagus stalks, two or three kinds of peas, bright arugula and baby spinach — I think you begin to see the trend. Use an excellent extra virgin olive oil and your favorite creamy chèvre and simply celebrate the season!

Ingredients

Preparation

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook linguine according to the package directions, until it is just barely al dente. Err on the side of undercooked since it is going to be folded into the hot sauce. Drain but don’t rinse.

In a heavy sauté pan, heat about 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat and add the leeks, garlic, asparagus and peas. Stir-fry this mixture for about 2 minutes or until the veggies are bright green. Toss in the arugula, spinach, basil, chèvre and bacon. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Fold the hot pasta into the mixture and drizzle with a little additional olive oil, if desired. Toss to heat through and serve immediately. Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese.
