       Yield: 4 - 6 folks
  
       5 cl Garlic, minced                           -salt to taste
       1 ts Dried red pepper flakes           1/4 ts Pepper
       2 ds To 3 dashes hot pepper sauce      1/4 c  Shredded Parmesan cheese
     1/4 c  Olive oil                         1/2 lb Mostaccioli, cooked drained
       1 tb Butter or margaine                       -=OR=-
       1 lb Fresh asparagus,                  1/2 lb Elbow macaroni, cooked
            -cut to 1 1/2 pieces                    - and drained
  
   In a skillet, cook garlic, red pepper flakes and hot pepper sauce in
   oil and butter for 2-3 minutes.  Add asparagus, salt and pepper;
   saute until asparagus is crisp-tender, about 8-10 minutes. Add
   Parmesan cheese; mix well.  Pour over hot pasta and toss to coat.
   Serve immediately. This would work for the diabetic as side dish.
   Food Exchange per serving:  1 STARCH/BREAD EXCHANGE + 1 VEGETABLE
   EXCHANGE + 1 FAT EXCHANGE (I always try to make my diet work around
   the fat, not the fat work around me). (The cheese is so close to know
   how to call it).
   
   Serves: 4-6
