    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    I developed this pasta recipe about 4 years ago and it has been accepted very well at all of my cooking demonstrations. It has a nice crunchy taste with the asparagus.

      My family loved this. I used dry herbs as well. No mushrooms for husbands tastes.

      Awesome taste! I used dried herbs instead of fresh, and it turned out beautifully. I am making it again soon for company!
