The Angel in Your Pantry Pasta Dinner

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Annacia

This quick and simple recipe came from my pantry, freezer and fridge. In other words, what I had on hand. The first thing is to start the water boiling for the pasta and once you have that bubbling your no more than 20 mins from a delicious, family pleasing, meal.

We enjoyed this, Annacia, very good. I didnt realise asparagus were out of season and hideously expensive, so I wrestled with my budget and decided to use zucchini, cut into batons, instead, please forgive me! I think that this would be great with asparagus! I did add a sprinkling of dried chilli flakes, simply because I enjoy them and thought it might be a nice addition, I liked it :). Otherwise as recipe, this was a good supper dish and I will most certainly make this again! Thanks for posting, made for PRMR tag game.
