Pasta with lemon asparagus

Asparagus is something I only recently learned to eat. I've always been pretty picky when it comes to food. When I was little, I was forced to stay at the table to finish my lasagna for example, a dish that I have no problem with eating now. But I have both gotten older and my taste buds have changed and because of that i have started to try more food. I think a large part is because I dare to try more too. When you are young, you have your habitual patterns and it can be very scary with food that is not something that your mother has always been cooking...

My interest in food has also grown bigger since i've gotten my own kitchen. I lived in a student dorm when I studied and I didn't want to spend any more time then i had to in that kitchen. So I muddled around with the same seven dishes for about three years...

Pasta with lemon asparagus

Ingredients for 4 servings:

4 servings of pasta

1 cups of cream
125 g cream cheese flavored with garlic and herbs

Lemon Asparagus:
2 bundles of green asparagus
25 g butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
grated zest of ½ lemon
Salt and white pepper to taste

Serve with:
Crispy Bacon
possibly a little finely grated lemon peel

To do this:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius and put the bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in oven until they look crispy. Boil pasta water with plenty of salt in.

Heat the cream over medium heat in a saucepan. Add the cheese and let melt. Season with salt and pepper.

Rinse and clean the asparagus, split into two parts. Mix butter with lemon juice and peel, salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan and fry the asparagus until it is soft, put the buds in last.

Mix the pasta with the sauce, sprinkle with coarsely crushed bacon and possibly a little grated lemon peel and serve with the asparagus.
