Asparagus with Lemon Butter Pasta



Asparagus, as much as you want

1 lemon

1 Tbsp olive oil


1 cup dry pasta

1 Tbsp butter

1 egg

Shaved or grated Parmesan cheese (I just a vegetable peeler)


Zest the lemon into a small bowl.

Mix lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl large enough to hold the asparagus.

Add asparagus and salt and pepper to taste.

Either light your grill or pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.

Cook pasta according to package directions.

Grill or roast asparagus until crisp/tender (still a little snappy).

While the asparagus cooks poach (or fry – your call) the egg making sure not to over cook the yolk.


To assemble: Mix pasta with lemon zest and butter, top with asparagus, the egg, and Parmesan cheese. Break the yolk to mix in and enjoy!
