|Baby Pasta Shells With Asparagus And Marinara Sauce|
Asparagus is in season, and I’m probable the best one in my residence who virtually loves it, as a way to get all and sundry else on board calls for a few work (or sneaking into their food). Cutting it real small and combining it with lovely little pasta shells which hug each chew of asparagus works ideal in my residence!
You may make a double batch of this sauce to use for different recipes for the duration of the week or freeze it for a later time. This recipe requires having cooked marinara sauce available, jarred or homemade marinara.
