How to make asparagus carbonara
1 of 1
Mere minutes is all it takes to make an easy asparagus carbonara, which is perfect to enjoy when local asparagus is in season throughout May and June.

1 bunch local asparagus
350g spaghetti or linguine
4 eggs
50g grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs (chives, basil or tarragon)

  1. Warm a large bowl in the oven.
  2. Break the woody ends off of the asparagus spears, then slice them into pieces about as long as your thumb.
  3. Bring a pan of salted water to a rolling boil, then add your pasta. When the pasta is about 3 minutes from being done, drop in your asparagus pieces as well.
  4. When the pasta has cooked, drain the pasta and asparagus mix in a colander. Transfer to the warmed bowl you've had sitting in the oven.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, Parmesan and herbs. Pour this mixture over the cooked pasta and asparagus, and the heat from the pasta will cook the eggs.
  6. Finally, season to taste and serve.
