20-Minute Pasta with Asparagus, Bell Pepper and Tomatoes

This is another quick and easy dish that I love to make on busy nights. It cooks up in no time and it's colorful with lots of veggies. My hubby loves asparagus so I love to add some to my pasta dishes, like my Creamy Vegan Alfredo Pasta with VeggiesI used red lentil pasta that I bought from Trader Joes, it is gluten-free and only cooks up in 5 minutes. You can substitute your favorite pasta instead.

    I added veg broth instead of water, tops of asparagus and chopped up the bottoms, didn’t have bell pepper, or cherry tomatoe, but did have vine tomato, and I don’t like it too spicy so instead of cayenne I added paprika and red chili powder, a little extra garlic powder, salt pepper, onion powder, some dried basil’s well as fresh and dried thyme. Extra spices to hit more than one not for depth and it is fantastic but thank you for the beginning of the recipe.
