We had a little ham left over from Easter, some fresh asparagus from a local Farmer's Market and gourmet pasta from Aldi's on sale this week for $1.69 a bag. It went perfectly with my new pasta serving platter. This is so simple to make, and if you can't find trottole pasta, substitute another hardy, large sized pasta.
Let Summer begin!
1 pound trottole pasta (or other large sized pasta) 1 cup thinly sliced ham 1 pound fresh asparagus cut into 2-3 inch pieces 1/2 cup olive oil 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half 3 tbsp chopped fresh basil 2 tbsp lemon juice lemon pepper, to taste Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to directions. Drain.
Saute asparagus pieces in a small amount of olive oil. Add in ham and saute for a minute more. Remove from heat.
Toss together all ingredients, garnishing the top of the pasta with Parmesan cheese.
