Pasta with asparagus and speck

This is extremely tasty and easy to prepare recipe. I have to say, this recipe is not for the diet)) 

So, you'll need 

80-90 grams of pasta for one person (I took 180 grams of whole wheat pasta)
200g of asparagus 
100g italian speck (I took it thin sliced​​, but it is more convenient to take one thick slice, then you can sliver it) 
25-50 grams of cheese Grana Padano or Parmigiano 
small onion 
olive oil, salt, pepper 

So, put on fire two pots of water - one for pasta, one for asparagus. Clean and cut Asparagus, then boil it for 5 minutes about. Do not forget to salt thw water slightly. 

While the asparagus is boiling, chop the onion finely and fry till it became golden brown in olive oil. Then add about half or two thirds of asparagus from the pan. Fry is about 5 minutes. 

If you have purchased already grated cheese, it's good) I bought a piece and ground it in a blender. 

Add the asparagus with onions from the frying pan in the blender and a bit of water from the pan with asparagus and make the cream. 

Can be done, by the way, on the contrary - first boil a whole asparagus, then slice it. In this case, in the blender you will put thicker and stiffer bases and we leave gentle tops for second part of the sauce) 

Fry the speck. 

Speck can, of course, be replaced with the bacon, but it will probably be even more difficult to digest and heavy dish, because the bacon is more fat. It is possible in this case to drain oil from the frying pan abter frying the bacon. 

Now add the rest of the asparagus to the speck in the frying pan and fry a little

Put the sauce from the blender into the pan and mix everything. 

Cook pasta as it is written on the packaging. But of course we are preparing like all italians, "al dente" - that is when it gets stuck in the teeth a little. 

So, when the pasta is ready, "al dente", drain it and mix it with the sauce. Turn the fire off, leave for a minute and serve on a plate.
