Lemon Asparagus Pasta - Our Kind of Wonderful

Lemon Asparagus Pasta

This lemon asparagus pasta is so quick to make, and is absolutely delicious. It reheated well, making my work lunches something I actually looked forward to and ate, which isn’t always the case. This recipe is one we will definitely be having again and again.

Lemon Asparagus Pasta - Our Kind of Wonderful


1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, grilled, and cut into cubes
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
10 oz spaghetti pasta, cooked according to package directions
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese


Cook the pasta according to package directions. Add the asparagus to the pot of water during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain, saving 1/4 cup of pasta water, then set it all aside.
In small pot, combine the heavy cream and butter over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thick enough that it starts to coat a spoon, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest and juice.
Put the pasta and asparagus back into the pot you cooked it in, along with the grilled chicken pieces.
Pour the cream sauce over the pasta mixture and toss to coat, adding pasta water if needed to thin the sauce. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
