Asparagus, Sun Dried Tomato and Ricotta Farfalle

Asparagus and Ricotta Farfalle

The creamy ricotta made a wonderfully fresh sauce for the asparagus and pasta, and the addition of the sun dried tomatoes gave it an extra, almost meaty dimension (you could use sun blush tomatoes instead if you prefer). Try it whilst you still have time, asparagus season doesn't last very long.
