Testing Cookbook Recipes–Asparagus and Tomato Pasta

I need help. I am working on putting a gluten-free cookbook together as part of my graphic novel project, ASHES: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL. If you are able, please test the following recipe and comment your results. Did it work? Did the recipe make sense? Thank you!

Asparagus and Tomato Pasta

Bag of Box of Gluten Free Noodles (I like spirals)
Bunch of asparagus
Lemon (or lemon juice)
Pint of grape tomatoes, halved (or can of diced tomatoes)
Olive oil
Dried garlic, basil, and onion (powdered or minced)
Salt and Pepper

And don’t forget the cheese!

I prefer feta, but any white cheese will do. Swiss and mozzarella are yummy options.

First, cook the noodles according to the package directions.
Wash the asparagus, tomatoes, and lemon.
Cut off the asparagus ends. Toss in skillet with dash of olive oil until crunchy and bright green.
Slice tomatoes in half.
Slice lemon in half. Remove the seeds! Or find them as a surprise later. Squeeze lemon into large mixing bowl. (Or if using lemon juice, just add a splash.)
Put lemon juice, tomatoes, and dashes of salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and basil. You can add more for taste later. Add a dash of olive oil. Stir to coat.
When asparagus and noodles are ready to eat, drain the noodles and asparagus. Add to the mixing bowl and mix.
Add your cheese of choice and stir until it starts to melt.
Add more spices or olive oil or lemon juice to taste.
Can cook at a campfire! (I use laughing cow cheese)
