Penne with Asparagus

I love green asparagus and it is finally season.

Today Penne with green asparagus.

Ingredients:

Penne ( I prefer Garofalo , from Gragnano, south of Napoli)

Asparagus

A tin of chopped tomatos

4 Anchovies

Garlic

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.

Enjoy!
