#SundaySupper Pasta with Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes

Thinking back on my childhood days, I can recall one of my most favorite, easy, staple dishes which was noodles and butter. The simplicity of these two ingredients go perfectly together. Once in a while, I would even add a touch of salt. There is nothing better than butter sliding into the increases of my mouth as I slurped in a pasta noodle.

One of my favorite memories is of my stepmom pulling spaghetti from the fridge, noodles stuck together on a plate, she would place a dab of butter and it turned into a fabulous comfort food. Matter-a-fact, she still eats them this way to this day and because of her, I serve this to my very own little eaters.


  • 1 bunch of asparagus: stems removed, rinsed
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes: rinsed
  • 1-2 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon: freshly squeezed
  • Package of egg noodles

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 6 Tbs of LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt
  • 1 clove of garlic: minced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 lemon: freshly squeezed

Although I will admit that I take a bite here and there of my children’s pasta with butter, I have made a more “adult” version and included wonderful roasted vegetables. This recipe is perfect for LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. If you haven’t tried it yet, you definitely should! The olive oil and sea salt give this old fashion dish of “noodles with butter” a brand new make over. Just when I thought my childhood days of noodles and butter were over, heh, they have just begun! Try variations such as different vegetables, cheese, and even some herbs such as thyme! The possibilities are endless and delicious! Make it as a main dish or even a side dish. Add some crunchy bread and oh yea, butter! Mmm, what a meal! Bring on the pasta!


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. Place tomatoes and asparagus into a baking sheet or a glass 13×9 dish.

3. Squeeze fresh lemon juice and olive oil and mix. (I used my hands, way more fun than a spoon!)

4. Add salt and pepper and you have now given your vegetables a quick  rub-a-dub soak

5. Put in oven for 10 minutes. They should be nice and crisp when they are finished.

Confession time: I ate a lot of the tomatoes and asparagus when they were finished prior to my dish. I just couldn’t help it! One turned into two and then into three… please try to refrain and save some veggies for your delicious dish. I promise, it’s worth it!

6. Make pasta according to directions.

7. Meanwhile, place LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt in a pan and melt on low to medium low heat.

8. Add lemon and garlic to butter and stir occasionally for a few minutes until butter has all the way melted.

9. Add cooked pasta and vegetables to pan and stir.

10. Turn off heat and serve! Season with salt and pepper if you like.

This dish is perfect for the summer!  Go ahead and enjoy yourself!

  8. Ok, at the rate you are going with these recipes, I’m going to have to try them all. They all look so GOOD and I love trying new things. Thanks for being you girl ;0)

  9. I don’t have a particular recipe to name that I use butter in, however, any recipe that calls for oil (usually for pan frying) I always lessen the amount of oil it calls for and increase the amount of butter required. I feel I end up with better flavoring and less oily drippings come off the food (in my opinion).
