Pasta with Leftover Chicken and Asparagus For One

I tend to always end up with leftovers so this is a quick meal that incorporates some of the random items in my fridge.

First thing, get some water boiling.

I got some Parmesan cheese, asparagus, and some butter. I also had some chicken but managed to not get a picture. Sometimes I am just too hungry and miss a step.

Some flavored pasta.

And you guessed it, some garlic

I chopped the asparagus and tossed it in a pan with some olive oil. I threw the lid on and let it cook for a couple of minutes.

I tossed in my chopped garlic for another minute or two.

Chop up your chicken and throw your pasta in the water.

Once the pasta is done throw it in the pan with the chicken and asparagus.

Add some butter or olive oil and give it a quick toss. Plate it up and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

Dinner is ready in no time at all.

You could do this with broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts or peas. Have a great week!


  1. I just do not like pasta well enough to eat it as often as you do but quick and easy is always nice

  2. Looks yummy! I'll have to try this one! ;)


  3. Looks like my next several meals are planned. Chicken tonight, aspargus tomorrow, and pasta on Wednesday. I'm starving!

  4. awesome, can't wait to try it this week.

    I'm new to this blog and I like what I see!
