    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until it is crisp-tender, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Using a slotted spoon, lift the asparagus out of the boiling water and plunge it into a bowl of ice water. Drain.
    2. 2
      Bring the large pot of water back to a boil, add the fettuccine and cook until it is al dente, about 10 to 12 minutes. Drain.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, bring the chicken broth and shallots to a boil in a large skillet. Cook until the broth has reduced by half. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk in the sour cream.
    4. 4
      Add the drained asparagus and fettuccine to the sour cream sauce and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Divide the fettuccine and asparagus among 4 warm bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

      Really liked this recipe. Quick and easy to make. I steamed my cut aspargus using more water in my steamer. Once aspargus tender, the water was boiling to add spagetti. All the while i was simmering the sauce. I did not use lemon juice, just more zest and added more parmesan cheese. I topped with shrimp scampi before serving. Just wonderful, so light and refreshing. Thank You!

      Very good! I used onion and garlic instead of shallots, omitted the olive oil, and used vegetable broth and stored grated Parmesan instead. Fresh taste and nice flavor.

      I thought this was really good. I sauteed the asparagus in olive oil, with minced garlic. Nice flavor.
