Screen Shot 2017-08-04 at 12.22.46 AMIngredients

2 bunches fresh asparagus
1/4 cup light, creamy Parmesan salad dressing
12-ounce box fettuccine
8 ounces evaporated skim milk
2 tablespoons light cream cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Clean fresh asparagus under running water. Break off about 2 inches from the bottom of each asparagus to remove the “tough” portion. Place asparagus in a large bowl and cover with salad dressing. Set aside. Heat grill. Gently grill asparagus on hot grill for about 4 to 6 minutes, turning often. Remove asparagus from grill and place on a cutting board. Cut asparagus into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Set aside. Prepare fettuccine in a large pot as directed on box, eliminating the salt. When cooked, drain fettuccine in a colander. In a large pot, gently heat milk, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese until bubbly. Add fettuccine and asparagus and blend. Heat thoroughly on reduced heat.
