Campanelle Pasta with Asparagus, Lemon and Parmesan

This springtime pasta dish is an elegant supper yet a one-pot affair; the pasta and asparagus start independently but finish together, simmered with half-and-half, so their flavors mix and meld. Be sure to purchase pencil-thick asparagus so the spears cook in the time indicated and are a good size match for the pasta. You will need 2 pounds for this recipe; typically a bunch weighs about 1 pound. Penne and campanelle are our favored pasta shapes for this, but fusilli and gemelli are good, too.

Tip

Don’t boil the pasta until al dente. Drain it when it’s just shy of al dente, and remember to reserve about ½ cup of the cooking water. The noodles will finish cooking with the ingredients that form the sauce. The starchy reserved cooking water is used to thin the sauce so it lightly coats the pasta.
