Add crisp asparagus to this fresh pasta dish to make it memorable. Pair with crusty bread and a glass of wine for dinner tonight.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta in boiling water with 1 tablespoon kosher salt according to package directions, omitting additional fat. Drain.

Step 2

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add asparagus to pan; cook 3 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from pan; keep warm. Add broth, lemon rind, and garlic to pan; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup (about 6 minutes). Return asparagus to pan. Add pasta, grated cheese, salt, and pepper; toss well. Place about 1 1/4 cups pasta mixture in each of 4 shallow bowls; top each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons shaved cheese.
