How to make it

  • Bring your pasta water to a boil
  • Shallow boil your asparagus - put all it in a pot and cover with 1/2 cup vegetable stock, boil until tender, then add butter, set aside
  • While waiting for that pour your heavy cream into a deep frying pan
  • Add your remaining 1 cup of stock and microplane the full lemon for zest, bring to a rolling simmer.
  • Whisk in about 3/4 the juice from the lemon
  • Add the fresh grated parmesan and reduce heat, stir until melted and every so often for around 8 minutes or until thickened.
  • Back to the pasta, your water should be boiling, toss the pasta in and boil to al dente according to box
  • When sauce thickens add asparagus, cracked pepper and gralic salt.
  • When pasta is done, drain it and toss it into the pan, Use tongs to turn the sauce into the pasta
  • Top with chopped parsley and fresh shaved parmesan
  • If you are me, add more salt and lots more pepper cause you're a freak like that.
  • Get that last squeeze of lemon over your pasta to add brightness
  • Enjoy!

    i think fafalle would be a good choice for this...
    with any cream sauce you want a pasta with enough nooks and crannies to hold that lovely creamy stuff...
