Roma tomatoes, chopped
ground black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package
fresh linguini pasta
fresh asparagus, sliced
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Very easy and was surprisingly tasty. Made as directed except used canned diced tomatoes (drained) and didn't have linguini so used spaghetti instead. Never thought to add the asparagus with the pasta and cook together. Loved the way it cooked up because I like my asparagus crisp tender! Will definitely make again.
My kids liked it but my husband hated it. It was on the bland side. Probaby add some more seasonings.
We didn't find this dish flavorful. My finace liked it...at least he said he did. I didn't think it had enough sauce even after I (reluctantly) poured an entire jar of Bertolli Alfredo over it, and I used half the amount of pasta called for in the recipe. I made this per the recipe except used half and half and bow-tie pasta. Reading the ingredients, the liquid ingredients total 1.5 cups for 8 servings so I shoulda known...
Nicely flavorful. I used half and half instead of cream, probably not the best strategy since it separated, but it still tasted great.
I used the submitter's suggestion of using mushrooms only because of the cost of asparagus at this time of year. I made half a recipe using capellini (desired by my hubby). I sauteed the mushrooms in butter before adding them to the sauce, and I probably would have done the same thing had I used the asparagus. My one suggestion would be to double the sauce because keeping everything in proportion, there just wasn't enough sauce. However, that being said, this was a very good meal. I will admit to one other digression (sorry to those recipe purists who stick to the total recipe as written)----I used leftover chicken from another recipe, but I did sautee it in butter and olive oil with the garlic, very similarly to the recipe requirements.
