Spaghetti with Ricotta

Spaghetti with Ricotta
3 lbs. asparagus
2 gallons Purdyville Juice (use search to find recipe)

Comments: Wegmans had asparagus on sale for $1.49/pound. It was definitely a nice change from the usual vegetables, cooked in water, drained, buttered. The spaghetti dish is another quick meal from the very early days of our marriage. Collin cooked this meal in exchange for an extra hour of computer game playing. I think of this as an easy meal, but by the time he was done, he wished he had bargained for two hours!
