    Step 1

    Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking.

    Step 2

    Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

    Step 3

    For each serving, to order: Reheat 1 1/3 cups pasta in boiling salted water for 40 to 60 seconds. Heat 2 tsp. oil and saute 1 1/2 Tbsp. onions and 1/3 clove garlic until translucent. Add 3 oz. asparagus and toss briefly. Add 1/3 cup tomatoes and 1/3 cup squash and saute until tomatoes are softened. Drain and add pasta to pan with 2 Tbsp. stock or pasta water; season with salt and pepper.
    Plate and garnish with basil.
