Fettuccine with Grilled Asparagus, Peas, and Lemon
This classic pasta dish is perfect for summer when asparagus and peas are in season. The lemon makes for a refreshing meal that is quick and easy to put together.
Makes 2 servings
6 - 8 asparagus spears
2 garlic cloves, minced
juice of 1 lemon, about 2 tablespoons
1 pinch coarse sea salt
6 ounces fettuccine
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 cup peas
Toss the asparagus in the garlic, lemon juice, and salt.
Grill the asparagus until it just starts to develop a few blackened spots. The asparagus should still have some crispness to it. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch pieces.
Bring the water to a boil. Boil the pasta until it is al dente.
Toss the cooked pasta with the asparagus, parsley, and peas.
