Asparagus Portobello Pasta

So this was dinner last night for us.  I didn't actually cook dinner on Tuesday because it was free pancake day at IHOP, which we didn't get because the line was out the door and Phil had to get to work.  I went grocery shopping on Tuesday and I found some really cheap portobello mushrooms so I thought I would try them.  Well this is what I found and Phil seemed to like it at least.

Asparagus Portobello Pasta
2 cans asparagus ( I used 1 small ziplock baggy from the freezer)
1 can sliced black olives (didn't use these because I didn't have a can)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3 (2) portobello mushrooms
1 can peas, drained
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1.  Cook the pasta according to directions
2.  Heat oil in a large skillet, Saute mushrooms, peas, and seasoning.
3.  In food processor or blender,puree asparagus, olives, tomato paste and parmesan.  Move to a small sauce pan and warm up.  Put on top of pasta, then add the mushroom and pea mixture on top of that.
