Another 15 minutes meal to add to the list! This is a no nonsense and pretty straight forward recipe that doesn’t need much preparation. Great for busy week nights or quick lunch on the weekends. I made this for my helper and I last Sunday as I was craving for corn beef after I saw a can of Libby’s trying to woo me with it’s shiny armour. It didn’t need to put in much effort before I caved, and started rummaging through my vegetable chiller in hopes of something equally delicious to pair it with. I’m pretty sure I heaved a sigh of relief when I found a bunch of fresh Thai asparagus laying in the comer of the drawer, looking eager to be used. Then my pots, knife, and cutting board sprang into action, and very soon after I became a very happy woman. 🙂 Here was how this simple yet delicious recipe was made.

A minute before your pasta is al dente, add in your asparagus.

Meanwhile, heat sauce pan on med with oil.

Add your corn beef, garlic, onions, red pepper, and chilli.

Lower heat to med-low and allow to cook for 8-10 mins.

When pasta is done, drain it.
