Garlicky Asparagus Pasta

This is probably one of my favorite recipes. If you love fresh asparagus and a little garlic you will love this recipe. It’s called garlicky, but it’s not over the top garlic. This is a great recipe hot or cold, and makes a really great presentation. It travels well also if you need a dish for a church social, pot luck or any get together. I normally serve it as a side dish, but it would make a great meat free meal also! Enjoy!!


  • 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 oven or a large pot place sliced green onions, minced garlic and margarine. Sauté until tender, but not browned.
  5. In the 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.
