Asparagus & Artichoke Pasta

We mixed up a great dinner with just a few random ingredients - the result of poor planning turned out to be a great and easy dinner!

1 bunch fresh asparagus
1 can artichokes, rinsed & quartered
1 medium onion, sliced
light olive oil
1/2 bag whole wheat pasta
salt and pepper
garlic powder or fresh
fresh grated parm to taste

Cook pasta as per package instructions.
Snap the ends of the asparagus off and break each spear into 3-4 pieces.  Add asparagus and onion to a med-hi saute pan containing ~2 tbsp olive oil.  Add salt and stir frequently.
Add quartered artichokes to pan once the asparagus is bright green and onions are almost cooked through.  Cook for a few minutes.
Toss pasta in with veggies, add more oil to have a light coating.
Serve with fresh grated parm cheese
