This is one of those dishes that came together because the creme Fraiche was about to expire and I hate wasting food, even if it does go in the green waste. So I looked through the fridge and found some lobster I bought at Costco and of course it’s spring do there is tons of asparagus in our house. Added a little lemon and parsley tossed with pasta and voila – dinner. This could even be a weeknight meal as it come together very quickly.

Ingredients:
1 lb asparagus
1/2 lb pasta
8 oz lobster, crab or shrimp (cooked)
8 oz creme Fraiche
Zest and juice of one lemon
