    quikgourmet's Note:

    This quick and easy dish is a wonderful way to combine fresh asparagus with pasta in a red sauce. It caught my eye initially as an alternative pasta dish for those who can't eat cream sauce preparations.

    1. 1
      Heat water for the pasta.
    2. 2
      In a separate skillet, heat the oil; add garlic, tomatoes, pepper, salt, and parsley and simmer for 8 minutes, stirring now and then to mix ingredients.
    3. 3
      Add the asparagus; cover and simmer until stalks are not quite tender when you touch with a fork.
    4. 4
      Remove from the heat and leave the cover on, which will allow the asparagus to tenderize a bit more.
    5. 5
      Cook and drain the pasta; put in a serving bowl.
    6. 6
      Add the skillet mixture to the bowl and 2T parmesan cheese; toss well.
    7. 7
      Add additional parmesan cheese at the table, as preferred.

      We loved this, very tasty. I used only the upper third of each asparagus stalk (saving the rest for Vegetable Stock) and also served Party Roasted Shrimp for a decadent dinner. I used fire-roasted tomatoes and garlic-herb fettuccine, because I had them on hand. We like our asparagus on the crisp side, so I cooked the asparagus on top of the sauce and did not let it sit very long after turning off the heat. This is very similar to a dish DH orders often at our favorite restaurant, and it was quick, so this went immediately into our rotation. Thanks for posting, quikgourmet!
