Fettuccine with Grilled Asparagus, Peas and Lemon
This dish is hearty and light at the same time, a perfect summertime meal. And, it’s a cinch to cook up – you’ll see!
6–8 stalks asparagus
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon, about 2 T
Pinch of coarse sea salt
6 ounces fettuccine
2 T minced parsley
1 cup peas
Pepper to taste
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-long 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. Season with pepper to taste.
