Chatting with Charity 15
Hi everyone! Today I am excited to share one of my family's favorite weeknight dinners. It is super fast and let's be honest most weeknights we need FAST!
1 cup asparagus chopped
1 pound pasta
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup left over pasta cooking water
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1.Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water and drain.
2.Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and asparagus and heat through, stirring so it doesn't burn.
3.Add the pasta water, red pepper, salt, and bring to a boil. Toss with the cooked pasta.
Serve with a salad and some yummy bread and you have a wonderful and easy weeknight dinner
4.Sprinkle top with cheese
Serve with salad and some yummy bread and you have an easy, fast weeknight dinner!
