Pasta with green asparagus

Preparation method

  1. Cook the spaghetti al dente according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Chop the onion and finely chop the garlic. Slice the sweet pepper into long thin strips. Halve the mini sweet corn lengthwise.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan. Stir fry the onion and sweet pepper for 2 minutes. Add the min corn and fry for 1 minute. Add the garlic. Add the tomato purée and peeled tomatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute on a low heat.
  4. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Trim away the woody base (1-2 cm) of the asparagus. Cut them into 1.5 cm chunks.
  6. Heat the rest of the olive oil in a frying pan. Stir fry the asparagus on a medium heat for about 3 minutes until just tender. Season with salt.
  7. Remove the base of the paksoi. Slice the paksoi into thin strips. Drain the spaghetti and stir the paksoi through the pasta. Leave for 1-2 minutes, so the paksoi can soften.
  8. Divide the spaghetti over the plates or bowls. Spoon the sauce on top. Divide the asparagus over the sauce.
