PASTA WITH ASPARAGUS, SUGAR SNAP PEAS, AND PARMESAN CHEESE
"I am a lifelong gardener from a family of lifelong gardeners. I grow herbs and lettuces in tubs, plus I have a
large garden on a hill above my home that I call the Patch. There I grow strawberries, asparagus, gooseberries, blackberries,
and other crops that the deer do not care for—squash, broccoli, tomatoes. I have another smaller garden right on the
shore of the lake where I grow beans, peas, peppers, tomatillos, beets, eggplant, some herbs, and sunflowers.
The deer's favorites are beans and sunflowers, but they can't get at them here because it's about ten feet from the water.
This recipe is my hands-down favorite and I eat it once a week at least in summer."
