Asparagus Cream Cheese Fettuccini

Asparagus Cream Cheese Fettuccini created by Annacia

Only 5 ingredients and just a few minutes to prepare if using fresh pasta. I guess you can use regular pasta but it will take a few more minutes. In the recipe, it's Moutarde a l'ancienne. Recipezaar can't find that. Ancienne means old. So I wrote old mustard. The brand Maille has this mustard.

Ready In:
11mins

ingredients

  • 5 ounces frozen asparagus
  • 1 (350 g) package fresh pasta (fettucini)

directions

  • Cut the asparagus in 3 pieces each. In a large saucepan with boiling salted water, cook pasta 2 minutes. Add asparagus and keep cooking for 3 minutes or until pasta are al dente. Drain but keep 2/3 cup of the cooking water. Put the pasta and asparagus back in the saucepan.
  • In a little bowl, with a whisk, stir cream cheese, mustard and cooking water. Pour on the pasta and stir well. Garnish each serving with toasted pine nuts and serve now.

    This hit the spot last night when I wanted something quick and simple. I skipped the nuts for personal preference. My very first thought was "humm, oh well" but by the third or forth bite the clean simple flavors of the fresh asparagus that I used, the richness of the cream cheese (low-fat) and the taste of the very good quality pasta it's self had won me over and I enjoyed the rest of my dinner. I would make this again but I *might* try it without the mustard for comparisons sake.

    I used fresh aspargus, just cooked it first and then added. Also, couldn't find any pine nuts at the supermarket, but they sound like a good addition. Easy and quick to put together.
