Asparagus and lemon pasta
Three tricks pasta - this is truly a pasta template, versatile as anything. Here's pasta with lemon and any veg, plus Parmesan because pasta can’t be without it.
The tricks are really quite simple but the combination produces a devastatingly tasty dish, veggie or not, in just about the time that your pasta cooks, plus five minutes or so.
Cook the veg with pasta, make a lemon butter sauce, add some pasta cooking water - just about it. Asparagus here (I have a one-track mind when the season starts) can be swapped for broccoli, peas, sliced beans, cauliflower, green cabbage and whatever else you see fit to be tossed with pasta, butter and Parmesan.
