This recipe belongs to my beautiful best friend and has been a favourite of mine for many years.

It’s normally a stove top dish but she recently tried it in her Bellini and tonight I tried it in the tmx. I do prefer it done on the stovetop but the tmx version is very nice as well.

This can be served on rice instead of pasta if you prefer.

    This is one of my all time favourite meals from this blog, I absolutely love asparagus. I recently switched to a vegetarian diet and this is one of the few meals I really missed so I decided to give it a go without the chicken. It still tastes absolutely fantastic! I’m so glad I’m still going to be able to make it 🙂
