Step 1

• Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
• Break off tough ends of asparagus as far down as stalks snap easily. Wash asparagus; cut into 1-inch pieces.
• In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in asparagus, mushrooms and garlic. Cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are tender.
• In small bowl, gradually stir broth into cornstarch. Stir in onions and basil. Stir cornstarch mixture into chicken mixture. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss with pasta. Sprinkle with cheese and serve with some crusty French bread or garlic toast
