Recipe: Bow-Tie Asparagus Pasta

 *Courtesy of Kraft Recipes

So last night after the gym, I really wanted to eat something delicious and satisfying. So I did some research and something relatively simple to make and I found this recipe. And LET ME TELL YOU, it turned out to be probably one of the best pasta's I've ever eaten. If you don't like RICH sauces then STEER CLEAR. But definitely give it a go! SO GOOD!

What you'll need:
Julienne Cut Sun Dried Tomatoes
Cream Cheese (2 OZ)
Chicken Broth (1/2 cup)
1-2 INCH Cut Asparagus
Half Sliced Orange Peppers
Bow Tie Pasta
Kraft Shredded 3 Cheese
Oregeno (1 TBSP)
(Add in desired amounts of each. You don't need much cream cheese or chicken broth...but I've provided how much I used for about 2 servings)

1. So first what you are going to do is you are going to obviously boil your water for the pasta. Don't add salt as the asparagus that will later be added in makes up for that.

2. While your water boils, cut up your Asparagus and orange peppers. Also have your Julienne cut Sun Dried Tomatoes ready.

3. Once your water boils add the pasta in. Boil to desired tenderness BUT IN THE LAST 2 MINUTES add in your chopped asparagus.

4. While your pasta is cooking, put your orange peppers and sundried tomatoes in the frying pan. Pour some of the tomato oil from the jar if you'd like. Fry until crisp or for about 3 minutes.

5. When your pasta is done, drain, and then put in frying pan with the veggies. Also add in your chicken broth, oregeno and cream cheese to make the sauce.

6. Fry and stir for about 5 minutes.

7. Add on cheese and cook until melted (or 2-3 minutes).

 8. Eat one of the best pasta's you will EVER enjoy! I GUARANTEE IT!
