      Great easy and yummy recipe. I used fresh broccoli crowns, as I did not have asparagus. My family really enjoyed it....the leftovers were devoured as well. Need I say more? :)

      I tried this dish out of the magazine and it has now become one of my family's favourites! Even the kids like it (vegetables and all)! It is one of those meals that doesn't take long to make (the chicken and vegetable portion is done at about the same time that the pasta is ready to be drained). Makes great leftovers as well.
