Spring Veggie Penne

On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days.  Here is recipe 89: Spring Veggie Penne!

The vegetables that are coming in to season now that it is spring, are some of my favorites.  I really love good asparagus and peas are always a favorite of mine.


This dish is wonderful and light.  Give it a try as a main dish for a night you decide to skip serving a meat.
