Serves 1 Prep: 3 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Pancetta 80g
Asparagus 80g
Butter 1 tsp
Single Cream 60ml
Salt & pepper as required
Tagliatelle 120g
Parmigiano reggiano as required

Method

1
Here are the ingredients.
2
Boil the asparagus in salted boiling water for 90 seconds then cut in half.
3
Put the butter in a frying pan with the pancetta, then turn the heat on. Fry on medium heat to release the oils.
4
When the pancetta starts to cook add the stalk ends of the asparagus and fry.
5
Start boiling the pasta - use 1-1.5% salt of the amount of water (10-15g salt to 1 litre water, for example).
6
Press the asparagus firmly with tongs to release the flavoursome juices.
7
When the pancetta gets crispy, add the top ends of the asparagus. Press these down too (the lower ends otherwise the tips will break).
8
Add 30-40ml water and scrape the burnt butter and pancetta to make the sauce brown.
9
Add the cream and mix well. Season with salt & pepper and a pinch of grated cheese.
10
Add the cooked pasta and mix thoroughly to combine. Pour in another 30-40ml water to loosen the sauce. Don't over reduce the sauce.
11
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle over plenty of cheese and some black pepper.

Tips & Note

●The pasta will absorb the sauce very quickly, so adding the water is very important to stop it becoming a solid mass. Keep the sauce thin and runny
●You can use bacon instead of pancetta but the taste will be a bit stronger and saltier
