    Lalaloula's Note:

    I was sent a link to a wonderful sounding asparagus pasta recipe with balsamic butter by a wonderful friend of mine. It sounded so good, but had a few ingredients that I didnt have on hand, so I created my own version of it. Here it is: An Italian Dish with a small Asian twist to it. I hope youll enjoy it! :)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 500 g green asparagus, cleaned and cut into 1 inch pieces
    • 3 teaspoons oil
    • 180 g whole wheat penne (or use bow ties or corkscrew macaroni)
    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    • 1 -3 tablespoon garlic butter (for me 1 tbs is plenty, but adjust according to your liking)
    • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
    • salt and black pepper


    1. 1
      Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions until al dente.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile toss the asparagus with the oil, sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste and roast in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for 10-15 minutes. It should be roasty, but not too dark.
    3. 3
      During the last five minutes of roasting add the sesame seeds to get them nice and toasty, too.
    4. 4
      Drain pasta and add to a big mixing bowl. Add the butter (as much as you need to get the pasta shiny) and cheese. Mix well.
    5. 5
      Remove the asparagus and sesame seeds from the oven and toss with the pasta. Sprinkle with chives.
    6. 6
      Enjoy. :).

      We made this pasta recipe last night for dinner and it was very fresh tasting and easy for a weeknight. The 2 of us ate the whole thing with no leftovers. I enjoyed mine drizzled with olive oil. Thanks for posting! Made for May 2013 Veggie Swap.

      This is the perfect dinner for me. DH is not a huge pasta veggie dinner eater but I could eat pasta and veggies every day or soup. So I made this on one of his late work nights and it was wonderful. I usually add broccolli but the asparagus at the organic market looked so good I bought 5 lbs. The roasted flavors just add to the tecture and the depth of the meal. Thank you so much for a new idea. I will make this again very soon! Made for AS/NZ Swap Mar2012
