Meyer Lemon Pasta with Asparagus

Preparation: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Serves 2-4 people

Featuring: Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • 2 tablespoons Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup finely chopped shallots
  • Kosher Salt
  • 12 ounces tagliatelle or fettuccine pasta
  • ½ pound asparagus, ends trimmed, sliced into 2-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon zest


Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, butter and shallots and cook 3-5 minutes, until the shallots are softened, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and leave the pan on the stovetop.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 2-3 tablespoons salt.

Cook the pasta according to package directions. During the last minute of cooking, add the asparagus to the pasta pot. Scoop out and reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, then drain.

Turn the heat to medium under the skillet. Add the drained pasta and asparagus, ¼ cup cheese, lemon zest and ¼ cup of the pasta water. Toss with tongs until the pasta is coated with the sauce, adding additional water a teaspoon at a time if needed.

Serve the pasta in bowls, topped with additional olive oil and cheese to taste.
