Reviews for Asparagus-Turkey Pasta Toss
"Was a nice change of pace but definitely not a go-to recipe. Like to make a recipe the first time as the recipe states but did change a few things. Omitted additional salt as bouillon & Parmesan have plenty. Since the pasta only cooks 3 minutes decided to add the asparagus after it came to a boil. Was concerned that it would not cook in the sauce which turned out perfect for our taste. Did add 1/4 cup extra milk as the sauce really thickened after adding the cheeses. Says it yields 2 servings but we have enough leftover for one."
