    Charlotte J's Note:

    Another recipe for a not so local Farmers' Market here in our state. Wish I could go to it every Saturday. I've not tried this but don't want to misplace the recipe.

      Great fresh pasta recipe! The lemon juice really brightened this up. I liked the idea of slicing and sauteing the asparagus spears in addition to adding the tips. Used parsley instead of chives, otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
