Parmesan Pasta with Asparagus

I have a friend from church that brings this dish to our Spring potlucks at church and she was kind enough to share the recipe with me. Thanks Mim! It is delicious! and although the recipe says to serve immediately* after you mix it together I think it's better to put it into the crockpot for an hour or so till the oil and the parmesan flavors have been absorbed into the pasta. My crockpot has a *Warm* setting and that is perfect for this.

10 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes, or fresh red pepper
4-6 dashes hot pepper sauce
½ cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Lbs. fresh Asparagus, washed and trimmed
Salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
½ - 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 lb. angel hair pasta, al dente

Trim asparagus and set aside. In a saute' pan, saute' garlic, red pepper flakes, and hot pepper sauce in oil and butter for 2-3 minutes. Add asparagus, salt, and pepper.

 Saute' until asparagus is crisp - tender. Pour over hot pasta and add parmesan cheese; mix well.

 Serve immediately.*
