"This recipe is inspired by both Jaime Oliver's Creamy Shells and Peas recipe and a local restaurant's version. However, I've never been tempted to make Jaime's; I'm sure it tastes awesome but I decided to tweak it to my heart's content. Mine is very fast to make and very fresh tasting."

  1. Place bacon in a large saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until bacon is evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally while cooking. Drain the bacon grease from the pan, and transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and stir in asparagus and peas; stir occasionally and cook until the vegetables are slightly softened but still bright green, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cook and stir onion until translucent over medium heat in the same pan as bacon, about 5 minutes; stir in asparagus, peas, and bacon pieces.
  4. Squeeze lemon juice over the asparagus mixture; season with salt and black pepper.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and stir in the fettuccine; cook, stirring often, until fettuccine are tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  6. Stir hot fettuccine into the pan with asparagus mixture over medium-low heat and toss gently to combine.
  7. Stir in cream and bring mixture to a simmer.
  8. Sprinkle cheese blend over the mixture and allow to stand until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes; stir cheese lightly into the fettuccine and vegetables to serve.

This was quite good- I made it for Recipe Group. I did need to make a few changes, based on what I had. I did not have fresh pasta, so I used dried, and frozen peas instead of fresh. Also, I did...

Recipe Group selection 3/3/12. I omitted the bacon so we could eat this on Friday in Lent, so I knew I needed to add a bit of flavor back in. I did this by sauteing my peas and asparagus in EV...

I made this for Recipe Group and I guess I'm in the minority here, but while this was ok, it wasn't great for us...I ended up roasting my asparagus b/c we love it that way. I used more of every...

We all liked this - especially my 2 year old. I only used 1/2 lb of fettuccine & asparagus but put a lot more cream in the sauce (next time I want to try using some of the pasta water instead o...

Just okay - nothing all that great or special.

Pretty good starter recipe. I had cooked spaghetti and cooked bacon on hand, so I crisped up the bacon, removed it, sauteed the onions, some garlic and the asparagus in the grease, added a chopp...
