Enjoy this delicious lemon linguine pástá with pán-fried gárlic áspárágus ánd creámy fetá cheese. á fást ánd eásy vegetárián meál reády in under 30 minutes!

I used á whole lemon (zest ánd juice), sálty, tángy fetá cheese, olive oil, ánd freshly crácked bláck pepper to creáte á quick sáuce. When tossed together with the wárm linguine ánd á little pástá wáter, the ingredients cling to every pástá stránd, máking it wonderfully creámy without the need for creám.

áspárágus is one of my fávourite springtime ingredients to use. It cán be prepáred in so mány wáys: eát it ráw, roást, blánch, steám, pán fry it, etc! It hás á distinctive flávour thát is hárd to describe; á more bolder green beán? Let me know whát you think in the comments!

In this recipe, the áspárágus is quickly (it tákes only á few minutes) pán-fried with gárlic, which creátes tásty toásted gárlic bits, before being mixed into the lemony pástá.
