I came across this at Epicurious and fell in love, and its been elsewhere. Years of looking for the lemon pasta I remembered as a child, and finally found it. Tweaked it a little to my own taste, replacing parsley with fresh basil and using linguine. If you don't have tender asparagus, the europes best frozen ones are far better than woody fresh ones. Do NOT substitute lighter creams, it just does not work that well.
When I was a child, my family used to eat this at least once a week due to the fact that it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. We also added fresh herbs or sometimes whole kernel corn. Its even better the next day and it freezes well.
This is the second recipe from 30 Minute Meals Episode: Dinner and a Song. Okay, the first two reviewers have said this is a bit thin. So I'd suggest draining the crushed tomatoes also. But retain the juice incase it is needed later during cooking. Or you could add 1 or 2 tablespoons of tomato paste.
I love Mirj's Funky Chicken with Sesame Noodles. I decided to use the noodles as my inspiration for this recipe. It's really similar but totally different. We liked it and I hope others will too! Cook time is the time it takes to make the pasta. *UPDATE* Since posting this, I tried adding about 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes and it turned out wonderfully so I decided to add it as a suggestion.
This is a simplified version of lasagna, yet it has an authentic taste; better by far if made the day before or at least early in the morning, and then baked just before serving. I used ground beef, as posted but I'm sure that some other ground meat would work in it's own way.
