Recipe by dale7793

A very decadent creamy Italian pasta dish. You could substitute spagetti if you can't find angel hair pasta.

This recipe is fantastic! I mad eit last night. I used dry Vermouth (glad I did) and fresh asparagus (full bunch). Recipe needs to add 1/2 teasp of salt and if your asparagus is thick cut it in half lengthwise. Don't use 500g of pasta, it's too much. I used spaghetti and wished I used less AND broke it in half first to make mixing easier. As a trick, if you add extra oil you can stop at step 4. It's exactly the same as a sauce at a local restruant, and only takes 10mins ;-) Fresh herbs will make all the difference in the world. YUM!
