This is dedicated to the Beverage Gang as they have inspired me to use more spirits in my cooking. I like that I have to sample the spirits to make sure they are just right for the cooking. :-)

Fabulous recipe!!! We loved this. Perfect for a Spring dinner. I would definitely serve this to guests. I used a 10 oz can of Ro-tel, omitted the celery and halved the parmesan. We loved the hint of spice, the fresh asparagus and the pasta mixed with parmesan. Yum! This is going into my best-of-the-best file. Thanks!

Have made this a few times. No celery. Very good base recipe to use as is or tweak according to what you have on hand. Using the Rotel-type tomatoes is a great idea and adds a nice amount of spice. I preferred the onion thinly sliced. Thanks for a nice recipe!

This was really GREAT! Boy, did we enjoy it. It was really pretty and colorful. I wish I had taken a picture of it but we were in too much of a hurry (we had a baseball game to go to). I left out the celery because we don't really care for it but other than that, I made this as written. Thank you. I will be making this again for sure. Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches!
