Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Trim and discard the bottom inch of the asparagus, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Core, then cut the bell pepper into 1/2 inch pieces. Thinly slice the portabello mushroom.
Roast the veggies: Toss the asparagus and bell pepper on a baking sheets with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the centre of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 18-20 min.
Cook the pasta: Meanwhile, add the orecchiette to the boiling water. Cook until the pasta is tender, 12-14 min.
Finish the prep: Meanwhile, mince or grate the garlic. Roughly chop the parsley.
Cook the mushrooms: Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 min. Add the mushrooms, garlic and as much chili flakes as you like. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 7-8 min.
Finish the pasta: Reserve 1/3 cup pasta water from the orecchiette, then drain. Add the roasted veggies, sour cream, Parmesan, pasta and reserved pasta water to the pan. Stir until heated through, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Finish and serve: Divide the pasta between bowls and sprinkle with the parsley. Enjoy!
