ReaLemonGarlic Pasta with Asparagus and Lemon Mascarpone Sauce
This elegant pasta dinner comes together in 10 minutes and has a bright lemony flavour.
1/2 bunch (300 g) asparagus, woody stems trimmed
12 oz (380 g) spaghettini noodles
1 cup (250 mL) mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic
2/3 cup (150 mL) grated Parmesan cheese (plus extra for serving)
1/3 cup (75 mL) very thinly sliced, oil packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup (50 mL) each chopped basil and parsley
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and freshly ground black pepper
Slice asparagus spears in half crosswise then again lengthwise (or thirds if very thick). Cook spaghettini in a large pot of boiling, well-salted water according to package timing. Add asparagus during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Measure out 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) of the cooking water before draining pasta. Return drained pasta and asparagus to pot. Add mascarpone, ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic, and 1 cup (250 mL) reserved cooking water; tossing until pasta is well coated. Add Parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, parsley, salt and pepper; tossing to combine. (Adjust consistency with additional pasta water as needed.) Serve immediately, with extra cheese at the table. Makes 6 servings. Tip: Use any pasta cut you prefer.
