    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to the boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to the boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
    2. While fettuccine is boiling, place asparagus and peas into a steamer insert and place insert over the pot of fettuccine. Steam vegetables until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove steamer insert and drain fettuccine.
    3. Combine fettuccine, asparagus, peas, basil, mint, parsley, feta cheese, scallions and olive oil together in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
