This was a great change of pace pasta dish. My whole family liked it, including teenagers. I added the juice of a whole lemon and a generous pinch of cayenne to add flavor. Next time, I think I'll start with 2 lbs. of asparagus, and add one whole pound, steamed and chopped to the pasta at the end.

What a creamy sauce this makes to coat the pasta in! I loved the vibrant colour too. The only thing that holds me back from giving this 5 stars is that the sauce was a touch bland but if you squeeze a bit of lemon juice over the top and some freshly ground black pepper it really livens up! I would add a few extra asparagus tips as well.
