Fettuccini with Asparagus and Ham

By April 15, 2011Uncategorized


3/4 pound asparagus, thick ends removed
1 pound linguine or spaghetti
¼ cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 red chile, sliced into rings
8 very thin slices ham
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until just tender, 2 min. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and set aside to drain. Slice into thin diagonal slices. Add pasta to the water and cook only until slightly soft, after 7-8 min. Place garlic, chile and olive oil in a skillet over medium low, and cook until garlic is golden. Add  ham and reserved asparagus, and cook until slightly browned, 3-5 min. Add about 3 tablespoons of the pasta boiling water to the oil in the pan, stir in the cooked pasta and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.  From www.asparagusrecipes.net.
