PENNE WITH ASPARAGUS AND CHERRY TOMATOES 3-25-17

3 tbsps. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 lbs. thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 cup shelled fresh peas
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1 cup grated Parmesan
2 tbsps. chopped fresh basil leaves

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the asparagus, season with the salt and pepper, and cook for 3 minutes until slightly soft. Add the cherry tomatoes and peas. Cook for 2 minutes. Pour the chicken stock into the pan and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook until the tomatoes start to burst and the stock is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Transfer the asparagus mixture to a large serving bowl. Add the cooked pasta and 1/2 of the Parmesan. Toss well, adding reserved pasta water, if needed, to loosen the pasta. Garnish with the remaining Parmesan and chopped basil.

BRAISED BEEF BRISKET (From thepioneerwoman.com) 3-25-17

2 cans beef consomme
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cup soy sauce
5 cloves chopped garlic
2 tbsps. liquid smoke
10 lbs. beef brisket

Combine first five ingredients in large roasting pan (a disposable is just fine). Place brisket in the marinade, fat side up. Cover tightly with foil. Marinate in refrigerator for 24-48 hours. When ready to cook, place pan covered in foil into a 300°oven. Cook brisket for approximately 40 minutes per pound. When fork-tender, transfer whole brisket to a cutting board. Slice against the grain and place slices back into the cooking liquid. Serve immediately, spooning juice over the slices. Barbeque sauce may be used, if preferred. Keeps in the refrigerator for up to two days or freeze for use at a later date. If fat collects and hardens at the top, remove and discard. Brisket is great with mashed potatoes, with the juice spooned over the top. Itís also great on a sandwich with melted cheese.
