Secret Ingredients
  • 8 ounces penne or 8 ounces ziti pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 lbs thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2 in. pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

  2. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomato sauce and half-and-half or soymilk, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Add asparagus and tarragon and reduce heat to low. Partially cover and cook until asparagus are tender and sauce is slightly thickened, 10 to 12 minutes.
