Rotini with Chicken, Asparagus, and Tomatoes


It's been a while and I apologize. Things snuck up on me fast. I had to pack up my entire apartment before the move, then there was the move itself and even though it has been more than a week, we're just getting around to setting up our computers. But now that things have settled down, I'll have more time to devote to cooking, eating, and sharing.

It's a beautiful day outside today, though! I love spring. Not only is it warm, usually sunny, but produce like asparagus goes on sale. Last time I saw asparagus for less than $2 a pound, I snatched some up and made Rotini with Chicken Asparagus and Tomatoes.

It was nothing fancy and almost seemed like a warm pasta salad. But it still hit the spot. Asparagus, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese? How can you go wrong with that? You can't.

If you don't care for goat cheese (the boyfriend is unsure of his feelings toward it) you could probably sub crumbled feta.

Overall, a great spring dish.

I love asparagus...and only since recently too! The blogging world convinced me to reconsider it! Your pasta looks fab...from the pic I first thought it was feta...I havent had goat cheese in a while though...so I can't even imagine what it would taste like on pasta! Probably pretty good though!! And no need to apologize about moving...I've moved SOOO many times beiing a competitive figure skater, and it is one of the most awful activities (?)...so much stress, work, and random obstacles that always seem to arise. Glad to see your back! I LOVE your food!
