Preparation of pasta with asparagus and cherry tomatoes

  1. First, dedicate yourself to preparing the asparagus. Remove the white and hardest part of the stems and peel the rest with the help of a potato peeler. Wash and cut into pieces, trying to keep the tips intact.
  2. Blanch the asparagus in lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes after it starts boiling again. Drain them and keep aside.
  3. Peel the shallot, cut it into quarters and slice it. Fry it in oil in a large pan , adding a little water if necessary to prevent it from burning.
  4. Wash the cherry tomatoes, dry them and cut them into wedges.
  5. When the shallot is well browned, add the previously blanched cherry tomatoes and asparagus, mix well and cook over a low heat.
  6. In the meantime, cook the pasta in plenty of salted water.
  7. After five minutes, season the asparagus and cherry tomatoes with salt and pepper.
  8. Once the pasta has finished cooking, drain it and sauté it for a few moments in the pan with the cherry tomato and asparagus sauce. Serve immediately and… enjoy your meal!
