This is a really great recipe as written. We've enjoyed it a lot. The other day I had zucchini to use so I substituted zucchini for the asparagus and half the pasra. Turned out very good. It's fortunate zucchini can be substituted for so much or it would take over the world!

I love fresh tasting pasta dishes like this throughout the spring and summer months. A great way to take advantage of the seasonal favorites in your garden or at your local farmer's market. If you don't like goat cheese you could easily swap out feta cheese for a greek twist, or use a milder tasting queso fresco. You could swap out veggie broth and leave the cheese out altogether and make it vegan. Maybe add some canned, rinsed chickpeas for protein.

This looks like a delicious spring dinner recipe, I can't wait to try it! It's finally warming up and I can't wait to start gardening and cooking with more vegetables.
