Base: Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

1 Pound(s) Medium asparagus, tough ends
snapped off spears halved
lengthwise then cut
diagonally into 1-inch
1/4 Cup(s) Olive oil
4 Shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 Pound(s) Button mushrooms, or cremini
mushrooms brushed clean
thinly sliced
Ground black pepper
Bring 1 inch of water to boil in large pot. Put asparagus in steamer
basket, then carefully place steamer basket in pot. Cover and steam
over medium-high heat until asparagus is just tender, about 2 minutes.
Remove asparagus and set aside. Reserve 1 cup of the asparagus
steaming liquid. 2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add
shallots- saute, stirring occasionally to separate rings, until crisp
and light brown, about 10 minutes. Add mushrooms, increase heat to
medium-high, and saut6 until they soften and release their juices,
about 5 minutes longer. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon
pepper or to taste. 3. Add asparagus and reserved cooking liquid.
Simmer until asparagus is heated through and sauce has thickened a
bit, about 2 minutes longer. Adjust seasonings. Cook's Illustrated,

Course: pasta sauce Season: spring Methods: steamed, sauted, boiled,
stirred and simmered Start to Finish 30 minutes Preparation 5 minutes
Attention 20 minutes Finishing a minute or less NOTES : Enough for 1
pound of pasta. If pencil thin asparagus are available, they don't
need to be halved, but thicker asparagus should be sliced in half, and
very thick pieces need to be quartered. You may add 1/4 cup Parmesan
cheese when you toss the sauce with pasta, preferably linguine, then
offer extra Parmesan at the table. Recipe by: Cook's Illustrated,
