Summer Lovin...

We caught a glimpse of summer a few weekends ago... and it was wonderful, spirits picked up, traffic jams were full of smiling faces, brown arms dangling from windows - no matter where you were there was sun to enjoy!
We took ourselves to the beach and, on returning, wanted something quick, easy and summery to satisfy those hunger pangs.
Asparagus & Lemon Pasta

You'll need
1 lemon, squeezed and zested
500gms cooked pasta, Farfalle or Penne are best, I used Fusilli out of desperation!!
4 tbsp of virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
100gms pancetta, optional
10 Asparagus tips

Heat the oil and add the garlic.    Add the pancetta and cook through. Add the chopped asparagus and stir until bright green.  Remove from heat, add lemon zest and juice and stir the pasta through.

Our minds were thinking alike this week!

As far as I'm concerned, there's little better than some lemony pasta with asparagus in it. SO easy, and SO spring.

Great beach pics! Love the action shot.
