DIRECTIONS

  • Start by heating a large pot full of water.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, parsley, and lemon zest; set aside.
  • When the water is boiling, add 1 tablespoon salt and gradually add the pasta.
  • Stir, making sure the pasta does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Four to five minutes before the end of the pasta cooking time, add the asparagus to the pot.
  • Boil until the pasta is al dente (firm to the bite); check the package for time indications--usually 8-10 minutes, although very thin pasta cooks more quickly.
  • Drain the asparagus and pasta.
  • Toss the pasta and asparagus in a warm serving bowl with the garlic/parsley/lemon mixture, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Sprinkle individual servings with parmesan cheese.
  • Note--you may prepare the garlic mixture an hour before serving.
