A show-stopper pasta in taste and presentation. Perfect for Spring, but equally delicious any season, and any occasion. The lovely lemon cream sauce is the perfect complement to asparagus.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Dressing.
How to Easy Peel the Asparagus
When peeling the asparagus and getting near the bottom of each spear, place the thin spear on top of a flat wooden spatula handle. This will raise the asparagus off the work surface to allow you to shave the last few strips.
Special Extra
Prepare using Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese Product or Philadelphia Dill Cream Cheese Product.
