Get a standing ovation with this gluten-free chicken asparagus spaghetti

Spaghetti with green asparagus and cherry tomato

I prefer to simmer my pasta sauce for at least two hours to get the flavors to blend well. Sometimes that kind of time isn’t possible, so I found that this spaghetti and asparagus recipe I came up with tastes like the sauce did simmer for much longer. You can get a standing ovation for your meal without having to spend a lot of time preparing it!
