Recipe Ingredients for Asparagus, goat cheese lemon pasta

1 pound pasta
1 pound asparagus spears
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
5 1/2 ounce soft fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Asparagus, goat cheese lemon pasta

  1. Cook your pasta in a large pot of well-salted water until it is almost tender, or about three minutes shy of what the package suggests. Add asparagus and cook until firm-tender, another two to three minutes. Drain both pasta and asparagus together, reserving one cup of pasta water.

  2. Meanwhile, combine olive oil, lemon peel, tarragon and cheese in a large bowl, breaking up the goat cheese as you put it in. Add hot pasta and asparagus to bowl, along with a couple slashes of the pasta water. Toss until smoothly combined, adding more pasta water if needed. Season generously with salt and pepper, and lemon juice if you feel it needs a little extra kick. (We did.)
