Pasta with grünem asparagus and pistachios in lemon Buttersoße

[Contains advertising] When the days start to become longer again, is that for me to be honest even the first glimmer of hope on the horizon said. Because I don't know, the spring is not far. No other change of season and I feel as intensely as the change from Winter to spring. All other times of the year to follow, in a way, "seamlessly", and are not nearly as spectacular.

Because when the first warm sun-diving rays in the spring, everything in a new light, and this stunning fresh Green of the plants and trees to see at once anywhere, the smells of the flowers and, not least, the ur-familiar singing of the birds, then my feelings do somersaults. The spring is just to love and if I had him as a "man" in front of me, I would hug him. Very solid press and say to him: "glad You're finally back".


The great thing about the spring is that he's tulips to me, my beloved free country-and, of course, the long-awaited ASPARAGUS brings ? . Both are one of my absolute favorite messengers of spring. How beautiful, then, in the context of the Blogger Challenge of ALDI SÜD, the theme of "messengers of SPRING" was put out to tender. To make the task a little spring-like on the table what is seasonal and regional. As I Packed, of course, the opportunity, and a new asparagus recipe tinkering.


The Asparagus season is not at all indispensable for me. I love asparagus, whether White or Green and depending on what you want to cook, is sometimes white, sometimes green asparagus better. Although I must admit that I always choose more often for green asparagus because it is so incredibly versatile, this delicious nutty taste note. For my asparagus recipe in the context of the Blogger Challenge of ALDI SÜD I wanted to use Pasta to the asparagus. Because Pasta with green asparagus, for me, are an unbeatable Team.


Also unbeatable because you can give the asparagus so well to the pasta water. Just the last 5 cooking minutes noodles for the preparation of the green asparagus to use. Two birds with one stone, if you will. A further combination of which I find delicious with asparagus total butter sauce and I had the basis for my recipe.

Supplements I got the Pasta with green asparagus with lemon. The give the dish a very fresh Note gives as well as the glorious smell of Basil and chopped pistachios. The pistachios not only to Nibble on a good, but blend in wonderfully with the green asparagus and give my Pasta dish a delicious crunchy touch.
