Asparagus Pasta

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by EmilyStrikesAgain

I liked this... right amount of heat and a nice switch from red sauce pasta. I think I would use less oil, it seemed a bit heavy. I also added the parmesan once the pasta was on plates as suggested below, and I added some red bell pepper because I had it on hand. I felt like it needed a little something more, though. Perhaps fresh parsley or oregano. Cilantro for a different taste? I'll make this again but keep experimenting.
