Spaghetti with Chicken, Asparagus and Sun-dried Tomatoes

posted in: Recipes 0

This pasta celebrates one of my favorite spring crops, asparagus! One of the only things my dad hated to eat, I was late to the game on this one, but absolutely love it now. The asparagus tops trap all the wonderful flavor that the mascarpone and sun-dried tomatoes provide. I hope you enjoy this quick weeknight meal!
