Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1

    pound tagliatelle or fettuccine pasta

  • 1

    pound thin asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces on an angle

  • 1/4

    cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4

    pound diced prosciutto, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

  • 4

    cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1/2

    cup dry white wine

  • 3

    egg yolks, beaten

  • Freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese (a generous handful)

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh thyme (about 2 palms full)

  • 1

    tablespoon grated lemon peel

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Add the asparagus in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water. While the pasta is working, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and cook for 2 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-low and stir in the garlic for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook until reduced slightly, 1 minute. Lower the heat to the lowest setting. In a medium bowl, combine the reserved pasta cooking water and the beaten egg yolks to temper the eggs. Add the drained pasta to the prosciutto mixture in the skillet. Season with the cheese, thyme, lemon peel and pepper. Pour in the egg mixture and toss vigorously to thicken the sauce, 1 to 2 minutes.
