Trans-fat Free, High Fiber


1 pound bow-tie pasta (farfalle)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound asparagus
cut into 1 inch lengths
3 cloves garlic
thinly sliced
2 shallots
thinly sliced
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, unsalted
1 cup almonds
¼ cup sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon thyme
fresh, chopped
1 cup Parmesan cheese


Cooke the pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain and return to the pot.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until just beginning to smoke. Add the asparagus and cook, undisturbed until beginning to color, about one minute.

Add the shallots, garlic, salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring until asparagus is tender crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Using the same skillet, over medium-high heat, add the butter. Once the bubbling has finished, add the almonds and cook until the almonds are toasted and the butter is fragrant and nutty.

Remove from heat and add the vinegar and fresh thyme, add the asparagus and toss to coat.

Add to the pasta with ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese and toss together.

Serve straight away, with the remaining Parmesan cheese as a topping.

Seriously delicious. I only used 2 tablespoons of vinegar and it was plenty - didn't want to overpower the dish.
