This was delicious! I felt there was a little too much asparagus though, I may cut that back just a tad next time. I used a real lemon, which I juiced, and I also added in some of the zest as well (which I think really made this dish even better!). This was super easy and the wine lemon made it a light dish, perfect for summer. I felt like the flavor didn't hold up quite as well w/ the leftovers, but it still tasted yummy.

Asparagus didn't blend into the pasta very well.

This was good. I added chicken to add protein to the meal.

Neither my husband or I are a lover of asparagus, but it's one of the few veggies my almost 2 year old will eat. So, I gave this recipe a try and we all LOVED it!!! I've made it 3 times already since trying it, and I'm making it again for dinner tonight. I didn't have linguine the first time I made it so I used shell pasta instead. Awesome! It was like the shells scooped up the flavor and it was fabulous. I've used other pastas since, but we still prefer shell pasta the most!

This was Sooooo GOOD!! It is definitely a keeper. I didn't have linguini so I used rotinit (spinach, carrot & wheat). It looked so nice w/all the colors!!Yummmm!!!
