Lemon Pasta with Asparagus

This Pappardelle with Asparagus, Olive Oil, and Lemon is ready in 20 minutes!
Lemon Pasta with Asparagus

Welcome to your new favorite summertime recipe: lemon pasta with asparagus. We used Pappardelle, roasted asparagus, fancy olive oil, and a lemon. It’s ready in less than 20 minutes, but is so light and refreshing it feels fancy.

Fancy Olive Oil is the Secret Ingredient

You just need great olive oil and the rest of dinner will come together. My favorite is Jordan Olive Oil, but you can try others. Foodies also rave about Brightland olive oil. Graza is also popular, with just two options: “sizzle” and a “drizzle.”

You can’t get much better than fresh, summertime al fresco dining, can you?
