ingredients to make spring pasta with grilled chicken, asparagus, mushrooms, peas, and lemon

We made our meal with gluten-free pasta, however, you can make yours with whatever pasta you love. Here are some of our favorites that you can use:

  • Corkscrew – including Cavatappi and Cellentani
  • Farfalle
  • Fusilli
  • Rotini
  • Ziti


Bring water to boil in a large pot for the pasta, asparagus, and peas.

While you wait for the water to boil, grill the chicken. I purchased chicken strips, so once they were grilled, I could quickly slice them into cubes to add to the sauce.

Cover your grilled chicken and set it aside while you prepare and cook the remainder of the ingredients.

The first step is to chop your garlic, cut your asparagus into pieces, and zest and juice your lemon.

While the pasta is cooking with the asparagus and peas, you can make the sauce in a separate pan.
