Simple pasta with asparagus

Pasta with green asparagus

Cut off the hard ends of the asparagus (about 2 cm from the ends) and cut the asparagus into pieces.

Bake the slices of prosciutto in a dry frying pan until crisp. Let them drain on kitchen paper.

Put a pan of boiling water on for the pasta. Add some salt and add the tagliatelle. Follow the instructions on the package for the cooking time and add the asparagus pieces 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time.

Drain the pasta, but keep about 200 ml of the cooking liquid. Return the pasta to the pan and sprinkle with three quarters of the Parmesan cheese. Add some of the cooking liquid and pull the pasta through with tongs to create a creamy layer.

Mix in the tarragon and season with the grated lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and some black pepper.

Spoon the pasta with green asparagus on the plates and divide the crispy baked prosciutto over it. Finally, sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan and attack.
