Alright, I am aware that many readers have come to believe we simply do not eat any meal that does not feature asparagus. And to look at our most recent posts, you wouldn’t be that far off. We just love the vegetable at this time of the year. And we do live in a place where some of the country’s best asparagus grows. So we take advantage of our geography and eat a lot of the stuff this time of year.
But we can hardly keep up with the 10 recipes in the current issue of Fine Cooking magazine. And to make that challenge even harder, the magazine says they all come to the table in 10 minutes. The recipe for Fresh Tortellini came at a particularly good time since we were entertaining our friend Stephen on a weeknight and Stephen is a strict vegetarian.
