Asparagus Pesto Pasta

File this under ridiculously easy meals.

Monday night I wasn’t feeling the steak and potatoes we had planned. Probably a side effect of recovering from that stomach bug I had. I wanted something comfort-foodie. Pasta is always a great option for this, especially when garlic bread is on the side. Unfortunately I didn’t have any garlic bread, but I did have loads of organic pasta from Costco that needed to be used.
