Penne with Chicken, Asparagus, and Lemon

A combination of some of my favorite foods made this a really great dish!  And all--that was ALL--my children liked it and ate everything on their plate.  That makes this a five star dish!

What I didn't do:  I didn't use the reserve asparagus water for later. First, I used frozen asparagus which was just as good and quicker.  Plus, I don't know if it was just me, but a reserve of asparagus water sounded kind of gross.  And another plus, I added cornstarch to the liquid and it still didn't thicken so it didn't need to loosen up anyway.  

What I liked:  Lots of flavor without a heavy cream sauce. And the kid-friendly factor.
