I ran across this recipe for Asparagus Pasta yesterday and decided it merited a special trip to the grocery store for asparagus and a rearranging of my menu for the week so we could use up the little bit of cream left in my fridge before it went bad.
And, because I'm trying to eat healthier and squeeze more veggies in, I made spinach pasta instead of using the penne or rigatoni the recipe calls for.
It was all quite good (especially with the addition of garlic. I am physically incapable of cooking without garlic, I think). I was worried it would be TOO vegetable-y but it really wasn't. My two year old gobbled it up and there were no leftovers. Not too bad for a Monday night meal.
