Spaghetti with asparagus cream!!!


For the Italian version click here!!!
Good morning everyone! Today another pasta dish with one of my favourite spring vegetables... Asparagus!!! I still had a bit of clotted cream left from the Madeleines and I've decided to make a nice sauce for the pasta. Quick and easy....but delicious!!!!



  • 160g pasta ( I used FiberPasta)
  • Asparagus
  • 50g clotted cream
  • 1 shallot 
  • 1/2 glass white wine
  • A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil ( I used Dante extra virgin olive oil 100% Italian)
  • Salt

Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Clean and remove the hard stalks. Cut the tips and place them aside. Cook the rest of the asparagus in boiling water (the same where you would cook the pasta) for a few minutes. Chop finely the shallot, chop the cooked asparagus and fry them in a drizzle of olive oil. After a few minutes add the white wine and cook until the alcohol evaporates. Continue cooking for 2 minutes. Blend the asparagus with the clotted cream, if necessary add some pasta cooking water. 
While preparing the cream cook the pasta in the salted boiling water, 2 minutes before the end of cooking add the asparagus tips. Toss the pasta with the asparagus cream. Decorate with the asparagus tips and some grated parmesan cheese. Serve immediately!
