Pasta with Asparagus and Parmesan

Good recipe for no-meat linguine or fettuccine pasta.

Pretty quick to make, nothing sophisticated, plain and simple steps to follow, as quick as cooking pasta itself.

Secret chief’s secret: don’t overcook asparagus and don’t burn garlic, that is about it.

Great recipe when you are short on time and need to eat.
