I mentioned before that Sura suffered a paw injury. While playing outside, she sliced her paw on a sharp metal object and ended up needing sutures. In order for it to heal, she had to wear an e-collar to prevent her from licking the wound.

e-collarUnfortunately, she had to wear the collar for the past 2-3 weeks and we’ve had to take her to the vet for check ups every other day. Needless to say she hasn’t been a happy puppy lately and it’s made life hectic for us since we had to figure out a way to get her to the vet in between normal work schedules. With limited time, it’s a challenge to come up with fast, simple dinner recipes. One night, I decided to try a mushroom and asparagus pasta. It was light and easy, perfect for hectic weeknights!


  • 1lb asparagus cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2lb of sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • penne pasta
  • chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • grated parmesan cheese


  1. Boil water and cook pasta as instructed
  2. Saute the chopped garlic in oil in a pan
  3. Add asparagus and cook for a few minutes
  4. Then add mushrooms and broth cooking for a few more minutes
  5. Drain pasta and toss with the mushrooms and asparagus
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste
  7. Sprinkle with cheese and red pepper flakes
