About this recipe: A walk through the farmers' market in May inspired this dish - fresh linguine pasta, asparagus and garlic scapes. I added some peas, fresh oregano, walnuts, and Parmesan. Easy and delicious.


Serves: 4 

  • 100g Parmesan cheese, cubed
  • 50g fresh oregano
  • 4 garlic scapes, cut into 3cm pieces
  • 75g walnuts
  • 500g fresh linguine (I bought a mix of plain and spinach linguine)
  • 500g asparagus, cut into 6cm pieces
  • 150g fresh peas
  • 1 knob butter
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil over a high heat.
  2. Place the Parmesan cheese in a food processor and process to small crumbs. Add oregano, garlic scapes, and walnuts. Process to finely chop the herbs and scapes. The mixture will resemble a wet, crumbly paste; don't process until smooth.
  3. Add fresh pasta and asparagus to the boiling water, bring back to the boil and cook for 3 minutes. Add peas to the boiling water, and cook for 30 seconds. Drain, and return pasta and vegetables to the saucepan. Add butter, and stir in Parmesan mixture; season to taste with salt and pepper.

I made it with homemade spinach pasta from this site. My family really enjoyed it! - 16 Jun 2016
