Pesto, Sun Dried, Mozz Pasta

This was so quick to make (really - I'm not just saying that!)  I was able to make myself...with a sick Brody who only wanted to be held; in like 10 minutes!  It also tasted FAB!

8 oz medium shell pasta
1 lb asparagus, trimmed
2 Tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and pepper
1/2 cup basil pesto
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained
1/3  cup diced mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil.

In a large pot of boiling salted water - cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Gently toss to combine.  place in oven and roast for 8-12 minutes, or until tender but crisp.  Let cool before cutting into 1-inch pieces.

In a large bowl, combine pasta, asparagus, pesto, sun dried tomatoes, and mozzarella.  Serve immediately!
