This was delightful, Eve. I steamed the fresh asparagus in my vegetable steamer, just until it reached that barely tender point. I also added a little garlic to the butter and then sauteed the asparagus. Made a very delicious meatless dinner. Really enjoyed it and left-overs were good the next day for lunch. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. I have used 1 Tbsp hot olive oil in place of butter and mixed some fromage frais into pasta for a change.
  2. Boil or steam asparagus in lightly salted water until just tender (approx 8-10 minutes) Cook pasta in another large pan of boiling salted water.
  3. Meanwhile, heat butter in a medium pan.
  4. Drain asparagus and cut spears in to short lengths, then add them to the butter.
  5. Add a little seasoning, then pour the asparagus mixture over the drained pasta.
  6. Sprinkle with dill and mix well.
  7. Serve at once with the grated Parmesan.
