Penne with Asparagus rec
 
found some asparagus for $1.79 per lb. couldn't resist so...Any tube like pasta would work here. I used penne as I already had it on hand.
8-oz. penne
1-lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut on a diagonal into about 1 inch pieces
3-tab. evoo
4-cloves garlic, minced
ground black pepper to taste salt
3-oz smoked mozzarella, diced about 1/2c.
4-oz. proscuitto, cut into strips crosswise
3-4 Tab. sliced fresh basil
Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add penne and cook about 5-7 min. or til it is as firm as you prefer. Add asparagus, cook about 2 min or til crisp tender.Drain pasta but save about a cup of the cooking water.
In large skillet heat oil over med heat. Add garlic and saute til you just smell it.Add pasta and asparagus a little salt and pepper and the 1 c. of cooking water and toss to coat. Take skillet off heat, add mozzarella, proscuitto and basil, toss, season with more salt and pepper and a light drizzle of evoo..Serve and enjoy

Hi Kim,
I hope you will enjoy it. I wasn't sure as the thick pastas are not my favorites, but, I tasted and it's quite good.

What do you mean by thick pasta? You've reminded me of another asparagus pasta I really enjoy. You may like it too!

Cora, I like most pastas, I just prefer, thin pasta like angel hair or linguine, I looked up the one you gave the link for and that looks great..I like farfalle or bowties and use them for Cade with an alfredo sauce..My little mister, loves any white sauce:lol: And he always asks for bowties:lol: Will give your recipe a try for us big kids and top Cades with his alfredo, til I can con him into trying some of ours...
Thanks Cora,
