Bow tie pasta tossed with asparagus, lemon and goat cheese for an easy spring meal.




  1. Begin boiling water for pasta.
  2. Place 2 inches of water in a 2nd large pot and bring to a boil. Add the asparagus, and steam until just tender about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the asparagus, and rinse with cold water to prevent from cooking more. Drain again and set aside.
  3. Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water, and drain the pasta when it is done to your liking.
  4. Drain the cooked pasta, and toss immediately with the reserved pasta water, olive oil and goat cheese. Stir in the asparagus, tarragon and lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Plate the pasta, and enjoy! This recipe is good with a crisp Italian white wine such as the Donnachiara Greco di Tufo.
