I love green asparagus and it is finally season.
Today Penne with green asparagus.
Penne ( I prefer Garofalo , from Gragnano, south of Napoli)
A tin of chopped tomatos
Few drops of Cream
Prepare the asparagus. Cut the tips and then cut the rest in slices.
Put a pan with oil on the fire. Fry the chopped or pressed garlic till gold. Add the anchovies.
Add the slices of Asparagus and let cook for some minutes.
I added pepper, salt and some vegetable stock for some taste.
Then add the tips for a couple of minutes before adding the tomatoes.
Let simmer for some minutes before adding the cream.
In the meanwhile cook the penne in boiling water ( in my case 11 minutes).
Add the penne to the sauce and ready to serve with some parmesan or grana.
