Asparagus Spaghetti

Posted By Kerri

We weren’t sure what to eat tonight so I had a quick look online and this recipe from Waitrose caught my eye; the picture looked good, the flavours sounded interesting and Stephen agreed so we were all set. It was really disappointing though, there was very little flavour and the overall taste was bitter and sharp. We managed to rescue it by adding some oil, lots of salt and pepper and Parmesan but generally, a big thumbs down 🙁

    That’s a shame. Would some lemon juice and zest have helped? What about basil leaves or parsley?

    There was some lemon zest mixed in with the creme fraiche Nilmandra but it just tasted rather bitter. Not sure what we could have done to improve it unfortunately.

    What a shame! Asparagus is so expensive too 🙁 There’s a comment section under the recipes on the Waitrose website, maybe it’s worth adding a comment to deter others.

    Hi Lizzie, there were some positive comments on the Waitrose site actually, so I’m wondering if we did something wrong (I’m pretty sure we got all the quantities right though) or if our asparagus just wasn’t very good.

    That’s a shame. I’m suprised as I’ve always been quite impressed with Waitrose recipes but I suppose there’s bound to be a few bad ones that slip through the net.
