What is it about pasta? I could eat it every day of my life and be a very happy girl.
You’ll always find a stash of great pasta in my pantry including lasagna, linguine, angel hair, fettuccine, farfalle, elbow, fussilli, and penne are the most common you’ll see on my shelf.
Each type can be cooked quickly and produce a scrumptious supper in just a matter of minutes.
A great base of pasta is delicious served with sauteed or roasted seasonal vegetables like this Spring Asparagus and Tomato Pasta with Feta.
Oh my goodness! Is it ever yummy!
I cooked my pasta and the last 10 minutes that it was cooking, I drizzled olive oil in my skillet, added my asparagus and sauteed them quickly.
Then, I added in the tomatoes and a sprinkle of seasoning. As the pasta was drained, I added it into my skillet with the olive oil, asparagus, and tomatoes and then tossed in hunks of feta cheese.
After another little drizzle of olive oil, this dish was ready to serve!
It couldn’t have been any simpler to make and tastes out of this world!
You’ve just got to try it!
