Pasta in cream sauce with aspargus, dill and lime

Everything turns more and more green outside from day to day. And one vegetable, which really is a spring vegetable is asparagus.

So I when I saw this recipe in the weekly magazine "Femina", issue 15/2015, I knew, that I had to make it due to the use of asparagus.

The taste of the pasta sauce is good, however I would like some more texture as the paste is very liquid.

Pasta in cream sauce with asparagus, dill and lemon: - 4 servings

  • 400 g pasta
  • 2 x 500 g green asparagus
  • 3 spring onions
  • organic lime - zest and juice
  • dill - finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 dl cooking water from the pasta
  • 1 dl dairy whipping cream, 38% fat
  • Parmesan cheese - finely grated
  1. Clean the asparagus, and crack of the ends, where the asparagus naturally crack.
  2. Cut the asparagus into a length of 5 cm.
  3. Finely chop the spring onions.
  4. Boil the pasta.
  5. Heat up the oil on a pan.
  6. Fry the asparagus pieces
  7. Add in the spring onions and lime zest.
  8. Pour pasta water, dairy cream and lime juice into the pan with asparagus.

    1. Yes, the asparagus season is here again :-)

    2. Not the real asparagus season - The real one starts with the white ones in a few weeks time. You will be pleasantly surprised - wait and see :-)

    3. Both you and I are big fans of the white asparagus. However, now we can at least the green green asparagus grown in Spain instead of the one from Chile, so we are getting closer and closer to "real" asparagus season :-)
