When Sharon emailed yesterday to tell me how good this dish was, I knew a trip to the grocery was on my agenda! What could possibly beat a combination of pasta, mushrooms, and asparagus with a sprinkling of pistachios thrown in for good measure?
My resolve set, I ventured out last evening, only to find that there must have been a run on asparagus in these here parts. All my favorite grocery stores were out! Everyone had the same idea:
Undeterred, I drove around until I found a store with a bin full of asparagus. However, upon closer examination, I had a good chuckle. These poor little things could have substituted for pick-up-sticks. I've never seen such tiny stalks!
Being a woman on a mission, I grabbed myself a couple pounds of the tiny deliciousness and made my way home, with visions of today's lunch swirling around in my head.
