Rotini Asparagus Alfredo

Rotini Asparagus Alfredo

Quick and Easy Dinner for the Family

With asparagus being in season right now, it’s fun to have ways to use it and enjoy this nutritious veggie! Simply roasting at a 425 degree oven with a little salt, pepper and touch of oil for about 8 minutes, is another easy way to cook it. I like to add veggies to the boiling water of pasta to use less pots and make it easier all the way around.

Please see the recipe below, try it out soon and…. Enjoy!
