This turned out better than I imagined! I didn't have cherry tomatoes on hand, so I used diced regular tomatoes instead. I love basil so I added a few leaves of fresh basil to the saucepan a few minutes before turning it off. Will definately make over and over!

Oh my, asparagus AND avocado AND dill! I'm not usually a fan of angel hair pasta, but this sauce made it heaven on earth! I even used the 2% cheddar to try to be a little good and it still was incredible. Next time I'll try it with my favorite--fettucini, but it could scarcely be better.
