“This quick and easy dish is a wonderful way to combine fresh asparagus with pasta in a red sauce. It caught my eye initially as an alternative pasta dish for those who can't eat cream sauce preparations.”

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat water for the pasta.
  2. In a separate skillet, heat the oil; add garlic, tomatoes, pepper, salt, and parsley and simmer for 8 minutes, stirring now and then to mix ingredients.
  3. Add the asparagus; cover and simmer until stalks are not quite tender when you touch with a fork.
  4. Remove from the heat and leave the cover on, which will allow the asparagus to tenderize a bit more.
  5. Cook and drain the pasta; put in a serving bowl.
  6. Add the skillet mixture to the bowl and 2T parmesan cheese; toss well.
  7. Add additional parmesan cheese at the table, as preferred.
