Asparagus with Pasta

Wanted a quick dinner tonight. Decided to go through the fridge and freezer and see what I could come up with. I must say this pasta dish was just what I was looking for. It is light but quite satisfying and cooked up in no time. I had frozen quite a bit of local asparagus but fresh would have worked fine, too.
