Pasta With Asparagus

A clipped out recipe from one of the TOH magazines submitted by J Fisher. She originally added red pepper flakes and hot sauce (1 tsp flakes & 3 dashes hot sauce) to this dish but due to allergies in our home I had to take those out and adjust with a bit more pepper and some extra garlic. I hope you enjoy it. I love making this in the Spring when asparagus is very fresh and has small stalks.
