Another Yummy!

on June 2, 2011

Another recipe. I love cookbooks and I love trying new recipes. This recipe was actually found via an internet search. I had a bunch of asparagus in the crisper that needed to be used. Stephen found a beautiful bunch at the greenhouse/produce stand and couldn’t pass it up. I was more than willing to deviate from the menu and come up with something different. I could have just steamed it but seemed boring to me. Clickity clack (more like touch, touch) and up popped a recipe that I knew was a winner!

Asparagus and Chicken Pasta recipe


1 pound pasta
8 asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 4-ounce skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup white wine
½ cup parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water according to package directions, 9 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring. Add asparagus and basil and cook until softened, 3 minutes.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and wine; bring to a boil over high heat, reduce, and simmer until liquid is almost gone and chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add reserved pasta and cheese to skillet; toss to coat and serve immediately.


Easy and delicious!
