Every Monday night is girls night with my group of girlfriends. Each week we rotate apartments and try out new recipes while watching the bachelor, getting our 2 hours of gossip in and enjoying at least a few bottles of wine. We usually all come from working out so what’s better than loading up on the carbs with a delicious pasta dish. There’s not much to this recipe but it’s a good one for a quick and easy weeknight meal (and maybe lunch for the rest of the week, seriously).
- 1 pound asparagus
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 pound whole wheat penne
- 1 jar vodka sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse asparagus and cut tough ends off. Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until asparagus is slightly crisp. Cook pasta according to package. Heat vodka sauce in small sauce pan. Drain pasta and add vodka sauce. Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces and add to pasta. Feel free to add a little Parmesan cheese!
Vodka sauce sounds very exotic (and boozy) never tried it!
