To buy:

8–10 fresh asparagus spears, woody ends removed

2 large handfuls peas

zest and juice of 1 lemon

Store-cupboard essentials:

METHOD

If using using dried pasta, cook it in a large pan of boiling salted water according to packet instructions. About 5 minutes before it’s ready, start the sauce.

CUT off the asparagus tips and keep to one side.

PEEL the stalks, using a speed peeler, into thin strips. (If you don’t own a speed peeler, use a potato peeler.)

MELT the butter in a large frying pan. When it starts to bubble, add the rosemary leaves and cook for about 2 minutes, until they start to crisp up.

ADD the asparagus tips and strips to the frying pan along with the peas and lemon zest.

STIR together and season with salt and pepper.

USING tongs, transfer the pasta to the pan and mix to coat in the sauce.

SERVE with a squeeze of lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil and a little grated Parmesan.
