This dish is so amazing! I love the combination of the flavors. It is like a lemony alfredo sauce with an asparagus kick. Soooo good! I served mine with some yummy tilapia. Enjoy!
-8 oz penne pasta
-1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and broken into 1 inch pieces
-1 1/2 cups milk (no lower than a 2% fat content)
-1 Tbs Dijon mustard
-4 tsp flour
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp pepper
-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
-4 garlic cloves, minced
-1 Tbs lemon juice
-1 cup Parmesan cheese
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Toss in pasta and cook for 6 minutes. Add asparagus and continue cooking for about 3-4 more minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile, whisk milk, mustard, flour, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in small sauce pan. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add milk mixture and stir. Bring to a boil and cook for an extra 2 minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Stir in lemon juice. Pour sauce over drained pasta and asparagus. Mix well. Pour cheese on top and mix well. Enjoy!
