2 Pound(s) Asparagus
2 Tablespoon(s) Butter

Black pepper, to taste
1 Lemon, cut in 6 wedges

Break off the tough ends of the asparagus stalks & cut the asparagus
at a slant into 3" lengths. Melt the butter in a large skillet; add
the garlic & tarragon and stir to distribute. Add the asparagus &
mushrooms, sprinkle with the salt; stir. Saute over medium heat for
about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables & stir to
distribute. Addthe half and half & nutmeg. Reduce the heat to low.
Bring to a simmer & cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce is
slightly thickened. Meanwhile, bring several quarts of water to a boil
& cook the pasta al dente. Drain the pasta very well. Toss the pasta
with the sauce in a warm serving bowl. Add the parmesan cheese and a
few grinds of fresh black pepper & toss again. Serve immediately with
the lemon wedges. Pass additional parmesan, if desired. Serving Ideas
: Serve with steamed or glazed carrots. NOTES : This dish is perfect
in spring when fresh slender asparagus is at its peak. Posted to
