Loved the browned onions and mushrooms that really added tons of flavor, also enjoyed the tender-crunch and freshness from the asparagus. The toasted walnuts just added enough nutty touch and brought everything together.

Ingredients

salt
*
1 pound pasta
farfalle
3 tablespoons olive oil
or butter, or half butter and half oil
1 onions
chopped
*
1 pound mushrooms
crimini, thickly sliced
2 cloves garlic
freshly minced
1 pound asparagus
thin, trimmed, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
1 cup mascarpone cheese
or cream cheese
*
1 pinch nutmeg
freshly grated
*
¾ cup walnuts
coarsely chopped, toasted
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Stir in the farfalle and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, 11 to 13 minutes.

Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water.

Meanwhile, heat the oil or melt the butter in a heavy large skillet over medium heat.

Add the onions, stirring often, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are soft and browned.

Stir in the mushrooms and sauté until tender and most of the juices have evaporated, about 5 minutes more.

Stir in the asparagus and sauté until the asparagus is crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

Stir in the farfalle.

Stir in the mascarpone or cream cheese and nutmeg and toss until the cheese coats the pasta, adding the reserved cooking liquid ¼ cup at a time to moisten.

Stir in ½ cup of toasted walnuts. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Mound the pasta in a large bowl.

Sprinkle with the parmesan and remaining ¼ cup of walnuts. Serve.
