Leah and Dean's Amazing Goop

Okay, so "goop" is probably not a great word for this dish, and neither is this a great picture.  Leah and I found a recipe last night that we didn't have all the ingredients for, so we sort of improvised.  This is what we came up with, and it was GOOD!  It was healthy and tasted like something from a restaurant.  I think this might even be a kid-friendly recipe.

1 small bunch asparagus
3 oz. bacon, cooked, cut into chunks
1 can diced tomatoes
2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
10 oz. uncooked wheat penne
1/4 cup parmesan 

1. Trim ends of asparagus.  Steam in steamer and keep warm.
2. Cook penne (at the same time as asparagus).  
3. Put bacon, tomatoes, garlic, seasoning salt and pepper into saucepan.  Heat until boiling.  Keep at a boil so that sauce thickens.  Add asparagus and penne.  Cook until sauce is thick and meal is heated through.
4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve!

Yupp, it's that easy.  It's also really fast and tastes great!
