Awesome pasta dish! Instead of microwaving the asparagus I just tossed it in with the pasta during the last 2 minutes of cooking. I let the tomatoes marinate for a couple of hours before I prepared the rest and they were so flavorful with the pasta and asparagus. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2014
