Here's a one pan, one serving meal^ that is super fast to whip up. I'm doing low carb, but you could add in noodles or even rice if you want.

1 teaspoon butter
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 small zucchini, cut into ribbons or noodles
1/4 bunch asparagus, woody stems removed and cut into bite sized pieces
4 ounces cooked pork or chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup or more of jarred Alfredo sauce*
Black pepper to taste
2 T freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

In a medium high frying pan, melt butter and add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds and add zucchini noodles. Cook 3-4 minutes** and then add asparagus. Cook 1-2 minutes and then add meat and sauce. Simmer for a minute or until sauce and meat is warmed through. Pour into serving bowl or plate and top with black pepper and Parmesan.

*I like Prego Homestyle Alfredo Sauce with Fresh Cream, my brother swears by the Paul Newman kind.

** I prefer my zucchini well cooked but my asparagus still pretty crunchy, so if you like different levels of doneness from this, adjust cooking time accordingly. Also, this was the tiniest, thinnest asparagus I'd ever seen. Yum!

^This is totally a template style recipe sub things in or out at will for deliciousness! You want something bulky (zucchini noodles, pasta, gf pasta, rice, cauliflower rice, etc), something crunchy (asparagus, water chestnuts, pea pods, etc), protein (chicken, pork, steak, tofu, tempeh), sauce (alfredo, marinara, peanut sauce), and something flavorful to top with to jazz it up (Parmesan, feta, sun dried tomatoes)

Adding a couple cups of chopped spinach would have been good too, I just didn't think of it. I'm a big fan of throwing spinach into just about anything you can!
