Start by placing a large pot of water to cook the pasta on the stove over high heat. Next rinse and trim about 1 pound of Asparagus. Cut into 1″ pieces and set aside. Saute 1/4 cup chopped onion in some olive oil in a large saute pan until translucent. When the water comes to a boil add 2 Tbs salt and 1 pound of Penne Pasta. Add asparagus to onion and season with salt and pepper. Let cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes. Add about 1 cup of cream. Add partially cooked penne and continue cooking with the asparagus and cream – adding a little cooking liquid if necessary. Serve warm with Parmesan cheese.
