Creamy Asparagus Pasta

We had another full day out in the sun so it was nice to have a fairly quick meal to look forward to.  As expected, the kids LOVED the pasta (even bebe!) so this is going to become a regular in our meal rotation.  I got the recipe from Shannon's blog and only changed a few things.  We also had a yellow and red pepper "salad" and some parmesan tofu fingers.  The best part of the meal?  That I skipped hot yoga in order to enjoy the food with my family and the fact that we are now on our way out for ice cream.  Guess what?!!  I LOVE SUMMER.
