I love asparagus and this time of year it seems to be readily available and reasonably priced! This recipe is one I haven’t tried, but I do plan to make it this week. It sounds so fresh and light, but filling! I think I’ll substitute some Barilla Plus fettuccine noodles in place of regular because it will up the fiber content and most likely bring down the points/calories a tad!
If you make it, let me know what you think!
