It’s coming to the end of the asparagus season , so I’ve another delicious recipe for you to try.
Fast, Simple and packed full of flavour a perfect dish for any occasion 😊

Ingredients
Serves 2 and suitable for vegetarians
Prep and cooking time +/- 20 mins

250g good quality tagliatelle De Cecco or Bariila are my favoured choice , for vegetarians you can use an egg free pasta
150gr cherry tomatoes or baby pomodori halved
200g green asparagus chopped

1 clove garlic crushed
1 big handful rocket or 2 if your feeling greedy 😜
1 hand full grated Parmesan cheese
Zest of half a lemon
Salt and pepper to season

Method

1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil ( while waiting for water to boil it a good time to chop the veggies ) cook the tagliatelle until al dente, or according to packet instructions

burn or it will become bitter , just let it infuse the oil .
3. Add the chopped asparagus and cook for 3 mins
4. Add the tomatoes and capers and continue to cook for 2 mins , you don’t want the tomatoes to break down too much .
