1/2 pound of your favorite pasta
5 garlic cloves, crush and chopped
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
4-5 spring onions, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon of butter or one egg yolk or both
Freshly grated Parmesan or Pecorino
Salt and pepper to taste
Boil water for the pasta. Cook as you are preparing the asparagus.
In a skillet, sauté the garlic, spring onion and then asparagus. It takes only 5-6 minutes to cook the vegetables.
Add the hot pasta and a spoonful of the pasta sauce along with the butter and/or egg yolk, perhaps a spot of cream. Top with shaved Parmesan.
