here's my 'stuff from trader joes' asparagus pasta

1/2 a bunch of blanched or lightly grilled / sauteed asparagus.
cut into penne size nuggets

1 bag of bow tie pasta

1 bag of TJ's medium sized (frozen cooked shrimp) - just let them thaw out

3 heaping tablespoons of olive tapenade (any TJ's tapenade will work really)

1 heaping tablespoon of pesto

1/4 - 1/3 of a cup chopped sundried tomatoes (in olive oil)


just cook the pasta, strain, and mix in all the ingredients
immediately while the pasta is still hot. good hot or cold..

i've never measured any of this so adjust amounts to what looks good to

Thanks CFB! I've always wondered about the explanation for that. Another example of the knowledge one can gain reading the ER forums.

Mmmm, like CF said, but grilling much longer and dousing with balsamic vinegar (which isn't raw, but oh so good!).

This Monday, I will be picking up an asparagus quiche at the local Mom's Apple Pie shop. I have been waiting for weeks but the local asparagus crop is not cooperating.
