Yummy Creamy Asparagus Pasta

You know when you have a craving, and you won't be satisfied until you have cooked it and eaten it.  This was me a few days ago.  I wanted a creamy pasta full of veggies and a little bite.

This was so easy to whip up.  It serves 2 generous bowls.

300g Rigatoni
150ml thickened cream
4 asparagus spears washed and cut in pieces
1 zucchini sliced
8 cherry tomatoes chopped in half
Handful of sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
Half of a pepperoni sliced and cut in half

Cook the rigatoni in a big pot full of salted boiling water.  While the pasta is cooking cook the sliced pepperoni in a small fry pan with a dash of olive oil until both sides are crisp.  In a larger saucepan cook the asparagus and zucchini until nice and green, but still firm.  Drain the veggies and then add to a large fry pan and toss in the mushrooms too.  Let them cook for a few minutes and then add the garlic and cream.  The cherry tomatoes need to go in too so they are not too soft. Stir the pepperoni in and let it all cook for a few minutes until the cream has thickened.  Then stir all ingredients through the drained pasta.
Sprinkle some Parmesan and a bit of salt and pepper on and.....
A M A Z I N G !!!

Of course we had to have garlic bread.  What is pasta without garlic bread?  Definitely satisfied my craving!

What have you craved lately?  Would love to know.
