      Cook pasta until al dente, adding the asparagus for the last minute of cooking time.

      Love the sauce! Light weight yet flavorful! We ate every bit of it. I did cook the asparagus longer--added last 3 minutes.

      What a nice way to dress up pasta. My sauce did not thicken, but that did not detract from the flavor. I might make the sauce with a roux next time, as that would also be better for reheating. But the combination of flavors is delightful.

      I had reviewed this, but the review doesn't seem to have shown up, so I'm having another go .... this was excellent!! I didn't realise when I tagged it that asparagus was out of season, therefore I had to use a tin, but this turned out to be a happy choice, I'm not crazy about asparagus and rather enjoyed the more mellow flavour and texture of the canned asparagus. The sauce was smooth and full of flavour, I squeezed a whole small lemon and really enjoyed the citrus tang. Draining the pasta over the peas thawed frozen) worked very well, and I added the aspapragus when I tossed everything together. very much enjoyed this and will definitely be making it again!!! Made for PRMR tag game.
