Roasted Asparagus Fettucini with Peas, Mint, and Grated Gruyere


Although asparagus and peas are not technically in season, this pasta dish is one of my favorites to make during a warm Summer night.  Roasted on my outdoor grill, the asparagus takes on a sweet and smoky flavor that pairs well with the peas and mint.



Finished with a bit of pasta water, grated Gruyere, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes, this fresh and bright dish is best eaten al fresco with a nicely chilled white wine.

Looks delicious! I think restaurant owners should use enticing photographs to promote and attract their customers to dine with them, just like this one. The curiosity on how does the food on the picture tastes like will let them figure it out themselves.
