      This is a nice and easy recpie, but we found it a little bland. Added some bacon bits at the table and it helped a little. I think maybe this just isn't our taste, but it is a well written recipe and I encourage others to try it!

      This has a light and refreshing taste, and a pretty appearance as well. I used more asparagus and less pasta, but otherwise made this just as written (although I probably used more pepper - I didn't measure). I went the bowtie route since I was out of penne. This looked and tasted like Spring to me. :) Thank you.
