This recipe was so easy, and I did a few changes.

I cooked asparagus with a bit freshly chopped garlic, olive oil and butter instead of boiling it with pasta. And it certainly made the dish more flavourful because of the additional buttery and garlicky taste.

I used fusili instead of penne that I didn't have. I also splashed a bit white wine vinegar in the end to add a bit acidity. It was delicious!

Question: is the parmesan the shaved variety tossed with all or are you adding the grated (canned) variety as part of the "spices" and cooked with the chicken?
