Pasta and asparagus are tossed together in this mildly-seasoned side dish that makes any appealing partner to poultry or fish. "I lightened up the original recipe by reducing the amount of butter and substituting olive oil," informs Carolyn DiPasquale of Middletown, Rhode Island.

"Asparagus didn't blend into the pasta very well."

"Neither my husband or I are a lover of asparagus, but it's one of the few veggies my almost 2 year old will eat. So, I gave this recipe a try and we all LOVED it!!! I've made it 3 times already since trying it, and I'm making it again for dinner tonight. I didn't have linguine the first time I made it so I used shell pasta instead. Awesome! It was like the shells scooped up the flavor and it was fabulous. I've used other pastas since, but we still prefer shell pasta the most!"

"This was Sooooo GOOD!! It is definitely a keeper. I didn't have linguini so I used rotinit (spinach, carrot & wheat). It looked so nice w/all the colors!!
