No joke...this is hard to stop eating! No joke...this is hard to stop eating!
Number of Servings: 4


    12 oz. uncooked whole wheat Penne Pasta
    20 trimmed Asparagus spears, halved lengthwise
    10 Cherry Tomatoes, split open or halved
    2+ tsp. Sun Luck Chili Oil


If you don't have asparagus, add a bag of trimmed spinach leaves...that is just as yummy!


Cook pasta according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, saute the asparagus and cherry tomatoes on high heat for about 3 minutes. You may use oil or butter, but I usually use the chili oil to do this. Cover and set aside until pasta is finished. Rinse pasta and add the asparagus to the pasta. Adjust seasoning according to taste. I love this HOT so put way more than 2 tsp. of the oil on. If you did not add the oil during the saute process, stir it in at the end...or let each individual add oil to their own helping.
