Asparagus has been so good this year! Each time I go shopping, I buy a few more pounds of this delicious vegetable. It’s been finding it’s way into my breakfasts, lunches and dinner.
Lemon garlic asparagus goes well with pasta and makes a satisfying lunch that is vegetarian and vegan. I used buckwheat soba noodles when I made it this time. You can easily substitute another kind of pasta. Even regular spaghetti is good in this recipe.
