This recipe is...
Penne with Asparagus and Red Peppers
8 ounces penne pasta, ziti and rigatoni also work well
2 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 pound asparagus, ends snapped off and stalks cut into 2" pieces
1 roasted yellow bell pepper, peeled and diced
2 roasted red bell peppers, peeled and diced
2/3 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup Basic Chicken Stock (see recipe), or low-sodium canned
1 tablespoon minced, fresh thyme
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
black pepper freshly ground
2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a 10" skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the peppers and garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add the stock, bring to a boil, and lower the heat to medium.
3. Add the penne and thyme. Stir to combine the ingredients and simmer until the pasta is al dente, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in half of the cheese and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
4. Transfer to a warm bowl, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve.
