Asparagus Linguine

 Asparagus Linguine
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.
