Delicious, and my 3 year old ate asparagus willingly for the first time! My DH struck his nose up and ate plain noodles for dinner...his loss!
We are sauce lovers here, so I whipped up a cheese sauce. After cooking the chicken, I added 1 1/2 c. Water and a cube of chicken bouillon to the pan, simmered until the bouillon dissolved, then drained all but half a cup from the pan before steaming the asparagus. Then I removed the asparagus, returned the rest of the broth to the pan and added about 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese (the powdered kind, it's all I had on hand) and about a tsp of flour. I whisked that together over a medium heat and let it simmer until thickened, then spooned it over the chicken/asparagus/penne. It was delicious!
If I had to do it again I'd probably have real parmesan, but I really didn't feel like running to the store just for cheese!
Thanks so much for the recipe!
