asparagus-pasta-salad recipe

From: "robert hoffman" (rwhoffman@powernetonline.com)


3 ounces dry angel hair pasta
1 pound asparagus, cut diagonally into 2 inch pieces (I got 10 	ounces
after breaking off the tough lower stalks)
3 ounces red onion, sliced and quartered (about 1/2 cup)
6 canned artichoke hearts, quartered 
1 cup unsweetened frozen blackberries, thawed
3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar 
2 Sweet n'Low packets (or 1 tablespoon sugar if you prefer)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fat free Italian dressing
couple twists of ground pepper

Break pasta into one to one and one-half inch pieces. Cook in boiling water
for about 5 minutes or until done the way you like them. Rinse with cold
water and set aside.  Place onions and asparagus in steamer and steam about
6 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain well.  Stir asparagus and onions
into the pasta and add the rest of the ingredients. Chill well. This makes
approximately 4 cups. One cup equals 155 calories of which 10 are fat
