    No I put the asparagus in th TM bowl with the pasta for the last minute and a half and that amount of time will slightly cook the asparagus so it is still firm to bite, if you like the aspargaus softer just put it in with the pasta earlier say at 3 mins.

  • I used spiral pasta and found

    I used spiral pasta and found it boiled over, so I had to reduce the cooking liquid. I also found the asparagus didn't cook.  Did you mean that you are supposed to steam the asparagus over the boiling water at step 1?
