    Tagliatelle with asparagus, lemon & chives

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes to 12 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes to 17 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    230g bunch asparagus, trimmed
    100ml double cream
    Finely grated zest 1 lemon
    2 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
    ½ x 25g pack chives, chopped
    125g Giuseppe Cocco Egg Tagliatelle
    4-6 tbsp freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano


    1. Cut the asparagus on the diagonal into 2cm lengths. Drop into a pan of boiling water, return to the boil for 2-3 minutes until just tender then drain.

    2. Heat the cream in a medium saucepan and add the lemon zest and garlic. Simmer for 2-4 minutes until the garlic is soft then discard. Add the asparagus and chives to the cream and simmer for 1 minute more. Keep warm.

    3. Cook the tagliatelle in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes until only just tender. Drain, keeping a little pasta water aside. Add the pasta to the sauce with most of the cheese. Toss together, adding a little cooking water if needed to loosen, and serve in warmed pasta bowls with extra grated Parmigiano and ground black pepper on top.
