Lemon Parmesan Pasta

Last week I got a chance to cook myself dinner, but I didn't have time to go to the store, so I used what I had in my kitchen.  This is what I came up with...

I had a bunch of pasta, some asparagus, and yellow squash, so that's what I started with...

I put the squash in a pan with some lemon flavored olive oil (I love this, by the way!  Try it.), and a little butter and got started.

After that I added the asparagus.  Note: I probably should have put the asparagus in first, as it takes a little longer to cook, but hey, I'm still learning.

When the pasta was done, I strained it, added it to the pan, and mixed it all together.  I sprinkled some salt and added some fresh Parmesan and I was done.

Wow.  It was good.  And I had lunch for the next two days :)
 This was super easy to make and really good.  What is a super easy meal that you make when you are pressed for time, but want a home-cooked meal?

I have to make this for Dusty! It is as if you asked him his favorite foods and then made a dish w/them! m(j)

Mama cook a pasta dish from scratch? I'll have to see it to believe it :)
