I love asparagus, and this is another lovely way to enjoy it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus. Cut asparagus diagonally into 1 inch pieces; set aside.
  2. Cook fettucine according to package directions. Drain well, and set aside.
  3. Saute onion and garlic in melted butter in a large skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the asparagus, mushrooms, and carrot. Saute 7 minutes.
  4. Add half and half, chicken broth, and basil; cook over high heat 5 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by about 1/3. Stir in green and red pepper; cook 3 minutes.
  5. Add reserved fettucine, 1 cup Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese if desired. Serve immediately.

What a delicious pasta dish! I had a variety of partial packages of pasta in the pantry (penne, rigatoni, spaghetti) so just used a combination of those, otherwise made just as directed and wouldn't change a thing. Loved all the veggies in this - thanks for posting the recipe!

Yum! I really enjoyed this a lot with all of the great veggies. Tasted very light. I made it as directed, other than halving the recipe. I had 2 more meals from this and played with the seasonings a bit. I tried some Italian seasoning and then added some crushed red pepper to change the taste the 3rd time, lol. This is a good recipe to clean out the refrigerator with little bits of veggies that are left. Thanks breezermom for some nice meals. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
