Asparagus Macaroni


Maccheroni agli asparagi is a delicious first course typical of Italian cuisine. The maccheroni pasta is dressed with a creamy sauce made with asparagus tips, garlic, butter, olive oil, white wine, broth, cream, and grated grana cheese. The preparation involves browning the garlic in a pan with butter and olive oil, adding the pureed asparagus tips, deglazing with white wine, and adding the broth. After about 10 minutes of cooking, the cream is added and salted to taste. Meanwhile, the pasta is cooked al dente in plenty of salted water and drained. The pasta is then transferred to the pan with the asparagus sauce and mixed well to combine the flavors. Finally, the maccheroni is sprinkled with grated grana cheese and served hot. A tasty dish full of flavors!
