Wanted something new to try tonight, so I found this recipe. Totally different and totally good! Just what I was looking for!
3 cups (1-inch) diagonally cut asparagus
1 (9-ounce) package fresh fettuccine
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped prosciutto (about 2 ounces)
(I also added 3 strips of bacon, chopped)
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup (1 ounce) fresh Parmesan cheese
Wipe pan dry with a paper towel. Heat oil in pan over medium heat. I added the bacon cooked for 5 minutes until its a little cripy, then add onion and garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add prosciutto; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in asparagus and pasta, reserved cooking liquid, vinegar, salt, red pepper, and black pepper; toss well. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
