Lemon Asparagus Pasta

Lemon Asparagus Pasta

This is a great, healthy dish for spring, using lots of spring veggies.

– 16 ounces of pasta (usually 1 bag – I use penne or some other shape that is similar to cut pieces of asparagus) – boil according to package directions

– 4-5 cups of asparagus chopped into 1 to 2 inch pieces – add to boiling pasta 2 minutes before the pasta is done

In another pan, a few minutes before the pasta is done:

– about 4 tablespoons of olive oil

– 1 cup of green onions, chopped

– grated lemon peel from 1 lemon

– juice of 1 lemon

Heat just through, and then add:

– 2 teaspoons of dried dill (or you can use about 2 tablespoons of fresh dill, which is in season now too!)

– salt to taste

– the pasta/asparagus

Stir it all together and enjoy!
