    While I was out slaving(and drinking) at a yard sale today Momma made dinner! It was pretty damn good!
    She don't do pics but I got one in the plate! :D

    4 cups uncooked bow-tie (farfalle) pasta (8 oz)
    1 lb fresh asparagus spears
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (3 cups)
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 red bell pepper sliced
    1 cup Progresso® reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
    Salt, if desired
    1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese (1 oz)



    1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
    2. Meanwhile, break off tough ends of asparagus as far down as stalks snap easily. Wash asparagus; cut into 1-inch pieces.
    3. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in asparagus, bell pepper and garlic. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are tender.
    4. In small bowl, gradually stir broth into cornstarch. Stir in onions and basil. Stir cornstarch mixture into chicken mixture. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Season with salt. Toss with pasta. Sprinkle with cheese.

    I sprinkled it with alot of black pepper too!
