Asparagus Pasta Sauce

A really quick and simple pasta sauce that is creamy, but not super heavy. Goes well with any kind of pasta, you can make it vegetarian or add some roasted chicken or seared shrimp. I served it with hearts of palm “pasta”. First when I saw this pasta version at Trader Joe’s I wasn’t thrilled about it, but I got so many friends talking about this product that I had to try it and I really liked the texture and the mild flavor. The main reason why this pasta didn’t get my attention was because in Venezuela we eat hearts of palm as a salad sliced with tomatoes and avocado, so I was hesitant about the texture and flavor.
