    conniecooks's Note:

    The lemon with the richness of the cheese is mouth watering good. You can add 1 1/2 cup of peas if desired instead of asparagus. Using fresh pasta makes this an almost instant dish.

      I thought this was just okay. Definately easy and quick but a little bland. I probably won't be making it again but if I were to I would add quite a bit of parmesean cheese at the end to give it a little bit of saltiness. Also, the ingredient list does not mention the asperagus. I just cut a big handful into 1-2 inch pieces. The good thing about this recipe was that I am always looking for new ways to use the wonerful local asperagus I buy at the farmers market this time of year. yum, yum. This accomplished that goal for me. The colors were nice too, all white with spots of green throughout.
