* 2 Red Peppers
* 1 lb Asparagus

Chop all vegetables, set aside. Boil water add Shirley J Universal Cream Sauce and whisk. Turn heat down and let reduce, stirring occasionally.

Boil water for pasta in separate pan. Cook pasta according to directions. Add chopped vegetables the last three minutes of cooking. Meanwhile, add crushed red pepper and Parmesan Cheese to Shirley J base, stir well. Drain pasta and veggies. Add sauce to pasta and serve.
