I know it is pasta, this is definitely one of my try not to eat too much of's but, oh, sometimes it is just way too convenient. Especially when you have had flu go through your house and some are sick and some are on the other side...just easy. So here is my favourite spring pasta. Another recipe where I kind of "wing" it.
Boil your favourite short pasta, and just before it is ready add a bunch or however much you like of asparagus that you have cut up in to one inch pieces. Now, only cook for thirty seconds, seriously, there is nothing worse than mushy green veggies. Drain together in the colander. And then add, some good olive oil, lemon juice, lot's of ground black pepper and parmesan. Amounts totally vary, add more of what you like and less of what you do not...easy and good and fast...enjoy!
