Asparagus, Chicken and Penne Pasta (

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by Debbb

This was a delicious pasta dish - a little out of the ordinary. I used 2 twelve ounce cans of asparagus since it's not in season right now. It worked out fine - just doesn't need to be heated very long with the seasoning. Lots of flavour! I used light parmesan, making this a fairly diet-friendly recipe.
