    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain. Place a separate pan of water on to boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender and bright green, about 3 minutes depending on thickness. Drain and place into ice water to stop the cooking process.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and capsicum; cook and stir for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and yabby tails; cook and stir for another 10 minutes. Add the asparagus and grape tomatoes to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large serving bowl.
    3. Mix pasta into the serving bowl along with the vinaigrette dressing. Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve chilled.

    This recipe is very easy to make, and is very tasty and fresh. The key is the vinaigrette that you use, as everything absorbs the flavor. I used less dressing than the recipe calls for as well to avoid overpowering the other flavors.  -  02 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
