Yay!  Its spring!  So that means I am all about lemons, artichokes, and asparagus – which are all ingredients in this fabulous pasta!  Wonderful , quick find, that I saw in Taste of Home magazine 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cups uncooked bow tie pasta (about 12 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed quartered artichoke hearts, well drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Fill a 6-qt. stockpot three-fourths full with water; add 2 teaspoons salt and bring to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, 1-2 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Remove asparagus and immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  2. In same pot of water, cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta water. Return pasta to pot.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add artichoke hearts; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add to pasta.
  4. Add asparagus, goat cheese, parsley, lemon peel, lemon juice and the remaining salt and oil; toss to combine, adding enough reserved pasta water to coat. Heat through. Serve with Parmesan cheese. Yield: 6 servings.
