Pasta with Asparagus and Lemon
"Pasta with lemon and asparagus, recipe can be used for any green veg. Only three things to remember! First: cook your veg together with the pasta, adjusting the cooking time according to the type of veg and desired cookedness. Asparagus cooks in no time at all so add it only for the last two or three minutes. Second: melting lemon. I discovered that lemon pieces thrown into hot butter will go WHOOSH!!! then melt beautifully and create devastatingly lovely sauce, very intense so sometimes half a lemon will do. Third: that reserved cooking water from under the pasta is not a myth, it actually does make up nice sauce. You need to drain the pasta and all into a colander, rather than fish it out with slotted spoon as I sometimes do, but make sure the first glug is decanted into a cup not the sink. It then goes into the butter-lemon-Parmesan concoction and hey presto! sauce."
