    Jociecee's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from the "Simply Down Home Cookbook' that I received from Studentchef in the Spring 2009 Cookbook Swap. It uses some of my favorite ingredients and I can not wait until late Spring when fresh, local asparagus is in season! A neighboring town, Hadley, Massachusetts is famous for its asparagus and I eat more than my fill every year!

      A very nice blend of flavors! This would make a HUGE amount as written ~ I used 1 pound of chicken, 8 ounces grape tomatoes, 1/2 pound pasta, and 1 pound oven roasted asparagus, with the basil, feta, and olives, as written ~ And, I'll be eating it for days! Made for my Preemie Orphanage Adoption Spring PAC 2011.
