Jennifer's Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Asparagus Pasta

This recipe is one of our favorites! Jennifer made it for us one time and we end up eating it at least once every other week. It is easy to make and super yummy! The sun-dried tomatoes must be the ones that are in the jar of olive oil. Trader Joe's sells a jar where the tomatoes are already cut julienne style. The chicken is not necessary but it makes a great meal.


8 oz penne pasta
1 pkg asparagus, cut into penne pasta sized pieces
~20 pieces sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, cut into penne pasta sized pieces
olive oil
1 pkg boneless, skinless chicken breasts
bread crumbs


1. Saute breaded chicken in a little bit of olive oil, turning once so it is fully cooked.
2. Meanwhile, bring water for pasta to a boil.
3. Remove chicken from pan and place somewhere to keep warm.
4. In same pan add a little more olive oil and some oil from the sun-dried tomatoes container (this will end up coating the pasta as a sauce).
5. Saute asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes on med. heat. Cook to taste.
6. Drain pasta and add to pan with asparagus and tomatoes. Stir until pasta, asparagus, and tomatoes are well blended.
7. Serve with chicken!

We have found that we like this meal with chicken that is thinly sliced.

Thanks, Jennifer, for this great recipe!
