Pasta with Rosemary, Chicken and Asparagus

Serves 4

8 oz. Mostaccioli, Ziti or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary
10 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of fat and cut into bite-size, thin strips
16 asparagus spears, sliced thin (about 2 cups), or 1 10-oz. package frozen asparagus, thawed and drained, sliced thin
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp. parsley, chopped
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.

Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and rosemary and cook 15 seconds. Add chicken and cook, tossing well, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Add asparagus, chicken broth, parsley and pasta to skillet. Increase heat to high and boil, stirring occasionally, until liquid has reduced enough to lightly cover pasta.

Sprinkle Parmesan, salt and pepper over pasta and toss. Serve immediately.
