    It's that time of year for everyone to eat their fill of fresh asparagus! I found this from Kraft and thought it looked wonderful.

      I used angel hair pasta instead of penne and I wish I hadn't. I also used roasted rep peppers and added some spinach. It was pretty good, can't wait to eat it cold.

      Definitely a winner in my house!! I have a very fussy DH and he loved it! I had to improvise on the dressing as I did not have a garlic herb mix so I prepared the onion and chive mix I had and added dried herbs and garlic. I added some lemony citrus oil in the mix, it was wonderful. I loved this recipe for taste, ease of preparation and the fact it is delicious hot and the leftovers make a great pasta salad. Nice recipe Nonnie4Two!
