  2. Roughly chop asparagus and blanch in boiling water, drain and place immediately in a bowl of iced water to stop the asparagus from cooking and to keep the bright green colour.

  4. Add the juice and zest of 1 lemon to the frypan. Add cream, garlic, basil and blanched asparagus, cook for 2-3 minutes until cream starts to bubble and asparagus is warmed through.
  5. Season with freshly ground pepper and toss fettuccine through sauce. Serve garnished with a sprinkle of parsley.
