Pasta with asparagus and ham

This post is also available in: Deutsch English

Asparagus time is the most beautiful time… or how was that? In any case, I love green asparagus! The other day we have already conjured up a delicious asparagus salad from it. But today I want something heartier! So we prepare beautiful pasta with paccheri, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and prosciutto cotto. It is refined with a nice white wine reduction and finished with some freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano!
