Very delicious flavor. Mine turned out a bit dry like Kitchen Witch, next time I will do what she suggested and use half the pasta (plenty for my family of four). Would also be good with a nice grilled chicken or shrimp to round out the meal. The whole family loved the flavor. Thanks for a nice change of pace!

This took some time to make and I had a lot of dishes to do but it had a great flavor. Mine did turn out a bit on the dry side. I hope I can perk up the leftover with a smidgeon of cream poured on top. if I did it again, I would cut the amount of pasta and asparagus in half but keep the rest of the amounts the same. I think there were too many breadcrumbs. I did add a splash of limocello and garlic to the asparagus saute and I added some chicken in to make it a heartier one dish meal for the family. Really phenomenal flavors I will say. I am very full right now.

I also picked this recipe to use up some Mascarpone and was so glad I did! Although I thought this was a lot of work, the taste was worth every second. I also liked the idea of using the same water for the pasta and asparagus - and will be using that trick in future recipes. Thanks for sharing this keeper!

Excellent! I was looking for a recipe to use up some Mascarpone and this fit the bill. Other than substituting panko for the breadcrumbs, I made the recipe as per the instructions. Great mix of flavours. The lemon and asparagus blend so beautifully with the mascarpone. We loved this dish and will make it again for sure.
