This colorful pasta salad is quick and easy to prepare. It's a perfect side dish for spring and summer meals.

Cook the pasta as directed on the package for al dente. Drain, then rinse with cold water to cool the pasta. While that's cooking, cook the asparagus...... place the cut asparagus in a microwave safe container or bowl. Add about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup water. Microwave on full power for 3 to 5 minutes or until the asparagus is tender crisp... do not overcook. Drain, then rinse with cold water to cool the asparagus. Place the cooled pasta and asparagus in a large mixing bowl. Add the grated carrots, chopped onion and peppers, grape tomato halves and oregano.
