Creamy Asparagus Pasta

Pat Duran


A simple shortcut gives this pasta its delectable creaminess; a package of garlic and herb flavored spreadable cheese, does the job.It melts into the pasta, generously coating each piece.
You can substitute any seasonal vegetables for the asparagus if desired.
Did you know that eating a little asparagus every day reduces water retention in your body? That's what Dr. Oz says.
