Creamy Asparagus and Walnut Pasta Dish 

 

Makes 4 servings
Preparation time: 30 minutes

 

Ingredients 

200 grams of gluten-free dry pasta 
1 pound of asparagus, cut into 3 cm pieces
1 / 3 cup of walnuts hachées
1 gousse d'ail hachée
3 tbsp olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
Ground pepper to taste

 

Preparation

 

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add the pasta. Cook according to package directions to make them “al dente”.
  3. Reserve about 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta.
  4. While the water is boiling, garnish the asparagus.
  5. Heat olive oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat for five minutes.
  6. Add the asparagus, pepper and 1/3 cup reserved pasta water.
  7. Cover and cook the asparagus, 4 to 8 minutes, until tender with a fork. Put out the fire.
  8. Once the pasta is cooked, puree 1/3 of the cooked asparagus and 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking water in a food processor until smooth. This is your sauce. (Keep the asparagus tips intact and grind the stems instead)
  9. Add the mashed asparagus to the pan, along with the sliced ​​asparagus. Mix the cooked pasta, lemon zest and more pasta water as needed to keep the sauce creamy.
  10. Heat over low heat for a minute or two to allow the pasta to absorb some of the sauce.
  11. Serve immediately and garnished with chopped walnuts.

 

Bon appétit!
