Lemony Asparagus Pasta

June/July 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (90 votes)

Penne and asparagus are bathed in a rich sauce with a slight bite of mustard, lemon and Parmesan. This dish is lovely in early spring, when asparagus is at its peak and nights are still cool enough to inspire a craving for something rich and warm.

6 oz for "Two"

I used 6oz of pene in stead of 4oz for two people. My measure is: 3oz per person if not hungry or if accompanied with extra dish; 4oz per person if hungry or eaten alone. With the other ingredients i added a bit here and there and used pasta cooking water when the sauce became too thick.

DEEE-licious

I made this recipe exactly the way it called for, except I doubled it. It was creamy and delicious and not very time consuming. The lemon zest is really what gives the dish its kick. My boyfriend, who is definitely the better cook of the house, loved it! My only complaint is that I come to this website for healthy recipes and this one has whole milk and all-purpose flour in it, and not to mention the cheese, so it's probably not the most health concious meal. Who cares, though, it was the bomb.

Easy, tasty

Great, easy recipe

I was worried that this wouldn't come out as well since we used soy milk instead of whole, but it was delicious. Incredibly easy too.

Good for guests or a quick weeknight dinner

Easy, Light, and Creamy!

This is a really nice weeknight meal. It satisfied my desire for a creamy pasta dish that wasn't heavy, and I didn't feel guilty about eating! Next time I might add more lemon zest and make a shake of red pepper flakes for a little zing!

Light yet creamy comfort food
