Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blanch asparagus (to save time, blanch in a colander placed in the pasta water as it boils), then run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Broil pasta.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ricotta, lemon juice and, once pasta is done, water.
  4. Toss with asparagus, pasta, salmon salt and pepper.

This made a marvelous dinner. The asparagus was tender-firm perfection and all of the flavors worked beautifully together. I will surely make this again and I'm looking already looking forward to it. :D

Mmmmm, so good! I added some more pasta, used a little less salmon and had an "oops" moment too! I had everything ready to put together and the ricotta I thought I had wasn't there. I subbed it with a blend of buttermilk and cream cheese and it worked out just fine! I didn't need to add any pasta water. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks TeresaS! :)
