Ingredients

  • 10-12 oz pasta, any short shape (I used tri-color rotini)
  • 12-1 oz asparagus, pref. slender
  • * 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced (use the jarred stuff)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat (Montrachet) chees, grated fresh Parm or feta cheese (I used Feta)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Cook pasta accordingly and drain.
  • Trim and peel asparagus. Cut spears into 1-2" long pieces.
  • Heat oil in skillet and add garlic. Saute over low heat until golden, 1 minute. Add red pepper and asparagus and a small amount of water. Cover and steam until veggies are to your liking (asparagus should still be bright green).
  • Combine pasta, asparagus mixture and cheese in serving container and toss well. You can add cooked chicken at this point as well. Season with salt and pepper.
