Preparation

  • Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Add the asparagus to the boiling water 4 minutes before the pasta is finished cooking. Drain when there is 2 minutes left of the recommended pasta cooking time and return to the pot.
  • Add the bell pepper, sundried tomatoes, broth, cream or ricotta cheese and oregano to the pot. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Add the Oka cubes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese melts slightly.
  • Serve hot or cold, perfect for the lunch box.
