  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat-high heat; saute asparagus and carrots until tender yet firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and garlic; saute until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir Parmesan cheese, cream, and black pepper into vegetable mixture until cheese melts and sauce is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Add pasta to sauce and toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This is a great base recipe. Try using green beans instead of asparagus, canned sun-dried tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes, or add some fresh pesto to the cream sauce to mix up the flavor.

Tastes as amazing as it looks. Had to substitute cooking wine 2 tablespoons and substituted rotini. Amazing!

Very yummy dish. Super easy to prepare and is a great addition to the menu. I added salt and pepper to taste but also added some hot pepper to give it a kick. Nice flavor and even the kids enjoy...

I didn't find the sauce thick enough, but the taste is good.

Awesome recipe. I didn't have asparagus so I put a yellow paprika instead and it was great!
