Chicken & Asparagus Pasta

The roommates and I have been on this new lifestyle kick…and when I say lifestyle, I mean, we’re changing our lifestyles and eating healthier and working out more.  We made this chicken and asparagus pasta last night and it was absolutely DELISH!!!!!  It was just what we needed after a long day at work and doing a Jillian Michaels workout DVD.
