Chicken and Asparagus with Penne Pasta

“This stuff is really tasty and so quick and easy! I've had this recipe forever. I have no idea where I got it. I probably jotted it down out of a health food magazine back when pasta was still considered a good choice for healthy eating. I increased the cheese amount because the original recipe kind of skimped on the cheese to make the dish more healthy and of course you could cut back on it if you wanted to, but I'm of the mind that more cheese = more better!” - Meave

“This is an awesome recipe. I originally cut it in half for just my husband and I. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written and we both LOVED it! A few days later we were having guests for the afternoon and my husband requested I make these again! I cut each spear (after wrapping in prosciutto) into thirds or fourths, depending on size, plated on a serving platter and served as a ‘finger food.’ Our guests gave it 5 stars as well, and asked for the recipe! This will definitely become a staple here, both as a side dish and an appetizer! Thank you so much for sharing!!” - MamaSue52

Asparagus Roll Appetizers

“I make this with uncooked fresh asparagus (I buy the thin ones) and they turn out perfectly cooked crisp tender. I usually make them the day that I am going to serve them so I don't freeze them, I dip them in butter then roll in parmesan cheese then refrigerate them until I am ready to bake them.
