Mmmm, Andi what a yummy, easy and quick to make recipe! It has all the goodness of spring packed into one bowl. The sweet bursting tomatoes combined with the nutty asparagus, roasted garlic, creamy cheese and aromatic basil make for a wonderful satisfying dish. It is so beautiful to look at, too. I used whole spelt pasta and gouda cheese instead of the parmesan, but other than that stuck to your recipe and it was perfect. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, hon! I will surely make it again! Made and reviewed for The Ingredient of The Month Tag Game in the Spanish Forum and Farm Cooking with YOU in the Photo Forum May 2010.

Very good. Kept most of the basic recipe, but made a few changes. Also added in fresh spinach, sautéed some fresh basil with the garlic and asparagus (in addition to the basil used to garnish), and substituted vegetable stock for College Inn White Wine and Herb broth (about double the amount called for). Will definitely make this again!

This is such a nice combination of flavors! We loved it. My daughter thought it was really great. I had to use frozen peas and asparagus because I haven't been able to find nice asparagus at the produce market. It was great anyway and easy to put together. Thanks Andi! I'll be making this again. Made for Holiday tag.

Perfect dish when you don't want to fuss. I am going to add just a bit more garlic next time though. Made for Every Day Tag. :)
