1 large clove
1 1/2 pounds
fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
salt and pepper to taste
boiling water, or as needed
grated Romano cheese (such as Locatelli®
chopped fresh parsley, plus extra for garnish
I thought this recipe was great!! The only change I made was I didn't have grated romano in the house so had to substitute shaved parmesan-romano, which was fine... But next time I make it, I'll be sure to upgrade to what's called for in the original. I loved the unusual approach of cooking the ditalini with the asparagus and then adding the egg mixture to the hot pasta... I thought the whole thing was easy and tasted FANTASTIC!! This will become a regular in my collection - thanks!!
This was pretty good (and healthy) but lacked some flavor. Next time, I will try using chicken stock in place of the water and 3 garlic cloves.
It was good but not great. It was pretty healthy though.
Nice and creamy! Easy to make too. I used grated parmesan and two eggs instead of one and it came out great!
This is really good! I used the whole pound of pasta and added a little more water and another egg. I also added a small amount of vegetable bouillon. I didn't have romano so I substituted some mozzarella and freshly grated parmesan. Going back for a second serving right now!
once done this dish was delicious.. i'm not familiar with ditalini and i don't know if it cooks quicker than other pastas (i used shell) but my pasta wasn't cooked in 10 minutes after adding the boiling water and continuing to cook (i used chicken broth bc i feared it being bland per other reviewers complaints).. i was worried about my veggies (i used a combo of asparagus and broccoli) turning into mush so i fished out the veggies and threw the pasta into some boiling water.. cooked until al dente.. then added it into the bowl of veggies.. then added the egg mixture to that.. i stirred it around but it still was runny.. no salmonella in my house so i nuked it in the microwave for a minute and the "sauce" was thicker so i felt safe to serve to bf and myself.. like i initially said.. this was yummy.. but i would have cooked everything separately and then added at the end
