An unusual pasta recipe; the macaroni is cooked with the asparagus, then the eggs, cheese and parsley are stirred in to "cook" after the water is drained. I generally use half stock/half water for the pasta.
This was pretty good (and healthy) but lacked some flavor. Next time, I will try using chicken stock in place of the water and 3 garlic cloves. - 13 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I thought this recipe was great!! The only change I made was I didn't have grated romano in the house so had to substitute shaved parmesan-romano, which was fine... But next time I make it, I'll be sure to upgrade to what's called for in the original. I loved the unusual approach of cooking the ditalini with the asparagus and then adding the egg mixture to the hot pasta... I thought the whole thing was easy and tasted FANTASTIC!! This will become a regular in my collection - thanks!! - 01 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It was good but not great. It was pretty healthy though. - 23 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
