When asparagus is in season, I could eat it every day! This recipe is originally from Cooking Light and pleases everyone in the family. Any extra is great for lunch the next day too!
Pasta with Asparagus, Lemon, and Prosciutto
1 (9-ounce) package fresh fettuccine
2 teaspoons olive oil
5 cups (1-inch) slices asparagus (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces very thin slices prosciutto, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
While pasta cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add asparagus and next 4 ingredients (asparagus through salt). Cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in prosciutto; cook, uncovered, for 1 minute. Combine asparagus mixture, pasta, and cheese in a large bowl, tossing to coat.
