My recipe pasta with asparagus I present to you in this post. You can use green asparagus or white asparagus for this pasta dish. Both taste delicious. 

In Germany, the asparagus season begins in April and ends on St John’s Day, 24 June. St John’s Day is popularly known as Asparagus New Year’s Eve.

I wish you all the best in cooking yourself and lots of fun in the kitchen!

1. Pasta with asparagus shopping list for the supermarket

For the asparagus pasta you need the following ingredients:

  • A pack of pasta, I prefer spaghetti “Al bronzo” as pasta
  • young garlic
  • some cocktail tomatoes
  • butter, olive oil
  • salt, pepper, sugar, nutmeg
  • Pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • Pesto or basil and pine nuts to make the pesto yourself

You can find the exact quantities below in the recipe Spaghetti with asparagus.

Pasta “Al Bronzo” is a special pasta. The pasta dough is driven through bronze nozzles. This pasta gets a rough surface and comes very, very close to the homemade pasta.

In spring I love the combination of young garlic and asparagus and I also show this with the asparagus risotto. You can also leave the garlic out if you don’t get the young garlic.

Since the asparagus season overlaps with the bear’s garlic season, a bear’s garlic pesto instead of basil pesto is a good idea. I will show you how to make your own bear’s garlic pesto in another article.
