Garlicky Asparagus Pasta

  • 3 cups uncooked Pasta
  • 6 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 2-3 bunches of green onions sliced in 1/8 inch slices or smaller
  • 4 tbs margarine
  • 1 lb of asparagus.
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large pot, cook your pasta according to the package directions (al dente). Set aside
  2. Wash asparagus well then cut into one-inch pieces. Woody ends need to be removed or filed down
  3. Place asparagus in a pot with enough water to cover. Steam the asparagus for 10-20 minutes until all the pieces are tender. Set aside
  4. In a Dutch over or a large pot place sliced green onions, minced garlic and margarine. Sauté until tender, but not browned.
  5. In the Dutch oven or pot with the sautéed, green onions and garlic add the cooked pasta and asparagus.
  6. Liberally add parmesan cheese to cover all the ingredients ( I add a lot ... more makes this recipe better)
  7. Heat through and serve.

This sounds like a great idea for dinner this Friday. (meatless/Friday Lent) I originally planned to make rice and beans, but I have a bunch of asparagus that needs to be used before it turns bad.
