Asparagus Cream Pasta

Asparagus Cream Pasta
Serves 3 (1 ½ cup serving)

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and discarded, then cut in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed and finely minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 1/2 cups cooked pasta of your choice, prepared al dente
  • 1 cup raw golden tomatoes, chopped (sundried would be good too- just use 1/2 cup)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Toss asparagus and chopped garlic with olive oil and vegetable seasoning in a baking dish.  Bake for 20 minutes, until asparagus is softened.
  2. Remove vegetables from oven.  Place stems of asparagus (ends without the flowers) into a food processor along with roasted garlic, chicken broth, and parmesan cheese.  Mix until a smooth puree is formed.
  3. Toss vegetable sauce with prepared pasta, then garnish heads of asparagus and chopped tomatoes.  Serve warm!
