Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 small garlic clove, diced
  • 8 ounces uncooked pappardelle (wide ribbon pasta)
  • 8 ounces pencil-thin asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch-long slices (snap off tough ends before slicing)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. To make gremolata: Combine chopped parsley, lemon zest, and diced garlic in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. 2. Cook pasta in a large saucepan according to package directions. When 3 minutes of cooking time remains, add the asparagus; finish cooking. Drain in a colander; rinse with cold water.
  3. 3. Heat the same saucepan over medium heat; add cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add pasta mixture to pan; toss to coat. Increase heat to medium-high; bring cream to a boil. Cook until almost all of the cream is absorbed (about 3 minutes), stirring constantly. Add half of gremolata to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. 4. Transfer to serving bowls; top with remaining gremolata. Serve immediately.
