RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

“I developed this recipe several years ago, as I had an abundance of my own home grown asparagus and just had to find new ways of using the asparagus. I submitted this recipe to TASTE OF HOME to see if it would rate. Well, I was awarded a runner-up prize which made me feel real good. It can be found in the April/May, 2004 Taste of Home edition on Page 27, ASPARAGUS PASTA PRIMAVERA. There's plenty of fresh herb flavor in this delicious pasta meal that blends asparagus, ham, mushrooms and plum tomatoes. Sometimes I like to use spinach linguine or fettuccine.”
