Bratwurst Vegetable Medley

This dinner is quick, easy and you will have it on the table in no time.  Enjoy!

Bratwurst Vegetable Medley
1 package bratwurst (from a local farm)
1 bunch of asparagus, snapped
1/2 can black beans, drained
1/2 package brown rice pasta (I used shell shaped pasta)
Several small tomatoes cut into fourths (I pulled out juliet tomatoes that we froze last summer)
Cook bratwurst in a skillet over medium high heat until brown.  Remove from pan and slice.  Return sliced bratwurst to pan.
Fill a medium saucepan with water, place on stove and bring to a boil.  Add asparagus, and cook until just tender (it will depend on the thickness of them), remove them to a bowl, but do not dump the water.    In the same pan, return water to a boil and dump pasta into water.  Cook according to package directions.  ***Note:  By not dumping the water you cooked the pasta in a vitamin rich water.
Cut the cooked asparagus into smaller pieces, add to skillet.  Toss to mix.  Add black beans and tomatoes.  Cook until all is incorporated and heated thoroughly.  Serve.
