3 ounces  whole-wheat spaghetti
6 ounces  peeled and deveined raw shrimp (see Note), cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 bunch  asparagus, trimmed and thinly sliced
1/2   large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup  fresh or frozen peas
2 small or 1 large clove  garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon  kosher salt
3/4 cup  nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons  chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons  lemon juice

Ingredient Note: Both wild-caught and farm-raised shrimp can damage the surrounding ecosystems when not managed properly. Look for shrimp certified by an independent agency, such as Wild American Shrimp or Marine Stewardship Council. If you can’t find certified shrimp, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America—it’s more likely to be sustainably caught. Tip: To toast pine nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until fragrant, 2 to 4 minutes.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook 2 minutes less than package directions. Add shrimp, asparagus, bell pepper and peas and cook until the pasta is tender and the shrimp are cooked, 2 to 4 minutes more. Drain well.

Mash garlic and salt in a large bowl until a paste forms. Whisk in yogurt, parsley, lemon juice, oil and pepper. Add the pasta mixture and toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with pine nuts (if using).
