Something Different for Me - Asparagus Linguine

Found this recipe somewhere online over a year ago and finally decided to try it. You see I am a very 'plain jane' when it comes to vegetables. Basically, carrots, peas, green beans and corn all my favorites. A couple of years ago a cousin invited us to dinner and fixed asparagus brushed with olive oil on top and fresh grated Parmesan cheese, baked for a few minutes. It was delicious! So as I re-found this recipe, I decided to cook it up. Tonight was the night!

Asparagus Linguine
6 ounces linguine - cooked to the instructions on package
Saute the next three ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Add to this:
1/2 pound asparagus, sliced each stalk in 1/2 inch slices
2 tablespoon chicken broth
1 tablespoon fresh squeeze lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Add the table or just before serving grate 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
I doubled the recipe, yeah, leftovers!
Enjoy! We did!
