Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

8 ounces penne pasta
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 pounds thin asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups (about 9 ounces) cherry tomatoes
1 cup shelled fresh peas
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1 cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Steps:

PENNE WITH ASPARGUS-PROSCIUTTO SAUCE

Provided by Food Network

Time 35m

Yield 6 servings (or 4 very hungry p

Number Of Ingredients 9

Water, to boil asparagus and penne
Salt, to taste
1 pound green asparagus, preferably thick stalks
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 pound prosciuuto di San Daniele or Parma, cut in bits
2 tablespoons freshly ground Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 1/2 pounds penne
1/4 cup light cream
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Steps:

  • Set a large pot of cold water to boil. Once it reaches a rolling boil, add a pinch of salt and let return to a full boil.
  • After washing the asparagus and cutting away any woody ends, boil them in the water just until you can penetrate the thick end of 1 of the stalks by stabbing it with a fork. Lift out the asparagus but continue to let the water boil. Cut off the tips of the asparagus and reserve. Chop the asparagus stalks into 1-inch pieces and then puree either in a manual food mill or in a blender or food processor. The result should be a thick cream.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and then add the prosciutto bits, sauteing just until they give off a little fragrance. Then stir in the asparagus puree and, moments later, the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Cook gently, taking care that the sauce does not boil.
  • At this point, toss the penne into the pot of boiling water. Cook for 8 minutes or according to package instructions. Once penne is cooked, drain water and place penne in a warm bowl.
  • While the penne is cooking, add the asparagus tips and some of the cream to the sauce. You do not want to make the sauce too liquid, so only add as much cream as will give the sauce a velvety texture.
  • Once the penne is cooked, spoon the sauce on and toss. Serve on individual plates with a pinch more Parmigiano-Reggiano on top an

PENNE WITH ASPARAGUS CARBONARA



Penne With Asparagus Carbonara image

This is an easy recipe, and one that you can twist and tweak endlessly, depending on what food you have on hand. The vegetable and the pasta shape don't matter much. And since you forgo the pork of a traditional carbonara, egg-friendly vegetarians will be happy.

Provided by Florence Fabricant

Categories     dinner, lunch, pastas, main course

Time 45m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 pound asparagus, medium-thick
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 large cloves garlic, sliced
Salt
10 ounces dry penne pasta
3 large eggs
Ground black pepper
1 cup grated pecorino (about 2 ounces)
2 tablespoons minced tarragon leaves

Steps:

  • Snap off the ends of the asparagus. If the stalks are thick, peel the bottoms. Slant-cut the asparagus in 1-inch pieces. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and cook on medium-low until the garlic is fragrant. Add asparagus and stir-fry until al dente, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook until al dente. In a medium-size bowl, beat eggs enough to blend them. Gradually whisk 1/2 cup of the pasta water into the eggs. Drain pasta and add to skillet. Add remaining oil and toss with asparagus over low heat, just enough to combine and warm the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat.
  • Very slowly stir about half the egg mixture into the pasta and asparagus, mixing everything constantly. Don't worry if some of the egg scrambles a bit. Quickly stir the cheese into remaining eggs, pour over the ingredients in the skillet and mix. Fold in tarragon. Serve immediately.
