Well here's the answer; not only is it quick and easy, but light and delicious.
8 oz tubular pasta (ziti or penne)
8 spears baby asparagus, cut into 1" pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1/2 tsp crushed dried oregano
2 Tbsp crumbled Feta cheese
*Optional: 1/2 cup grilled chicken or shrimp
Cook pasta until al dente'. To save time and water; place the asparagus pieces in a colander; put on top of pasta pot of boiling water and steam asparagus until they turn a bright green. Immerse asparagus into cold water to stop the cooking process.
In a large skillet, medium-low heat, warm up olive oil; add in pasta and asparagus; toss to coat and let cook 2 minutes. Mix in tomatoes, parsley and oregano (also optional chicken or shrimp) and let cook another 3 minutes.
Divide between 2 plates and sprinkle tablespoon of cheese over each.
Makes 2 servings.
