Fettuccine with Grilled Asparagus, Peas, and Lemon

Asparagus and peas, with the lightness of lemons and parsley, create a beautiful springtime dish, perfect for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients

Makes 2 servings

6-8 stalks asparagus
2 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon, about 2 tablespoons
pinch of coarse sea salt
water
6 ounces fettuccine
2 tablespoons parsley, minced
1 cup peas

Directions

Toss the asparagus in the garlic, lemon juice, and salt. Grill the asparagus until it just starts to develop a few blackened spots.

The asparagus should still have some crispness to it. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch-long pieces. Bring the water to a boil. Boil the pasta until it is al dente. Toss the cooked pasta with the asparagus, parsley, and peas.
