“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.”

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.
