Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Trim the ends of the Asparagus (3 cups) and cut them into about 2-inch lengthwise pieces. Set aside.
step 2
In a large pot, bring the water to boil with Salt (1 tsp). Once boiling, add Fettuccine (8 oz) and cook for 2 minutes less than the package directions.
step 3
In the skillet, heat the Unsalted Butter (2 Tbsp) over medium heat. Once melted, add Garlic (2 cloves) and cook until fragrant. Then add asparagus and cook for 2-3 minutes.
step 4
Add Frozen Green Peas (1/2 cup) and Salt (1/2 tsp). Cook for 1-2 more minutes.
step 5
Add Heavy Cream (1 cup), 2 tsp of Lemon (1), Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup), and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp). Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes.
step 6
Use tongs or a slotted spoon to scoop the pasta into the skillet and toss to combine (the extra pasta water from the noodles is necessary to make the sauce creamy, so if you drain the pasta before adding it make sure to save 1/4 cup of pasta water to use instead).
step 7
Serve with more parmesan cheese and 1 tsp of lemon zest on top. Enjoy!
