Asparagus and Poached Eggs over Pasta

Servings: 4 • Serving Size: 1 egg, pasta asparagus • Old Points: 6 pts • Points+: 8 pts
Calories: 300.8 • Fat: 7.0 g • Protein: 16.8 g • Carb: 46.1 g • Fiber: 6.8 g • Sugar: 2 g

8 oz uncooked pasta, I used Ronzoni Garden Delight Linguini
2 bunches mediumasparagus, tough ends removed (about 4 cups)
4 large eggs, I used cage free
kosher salt and fresh pepper
2 tbsp freshly shaved Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano Reggianio

Cut asparagus on an angle to one-inch pieces.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to instructions for al dente. TWO minutes before pasta is done, ADD asparagus. RESERVE 1 cup pasta water before draining pasta and asparagus in colander.

Meanwhile while pasta water is boiling, poach eggs. (There are plenty of places that teach you how to do this! I had never done it before and mine were perfect!!)

Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate.

Drain pasta then add back to pot along with some of the reserved pasta water. Divide pasta among four bowls, top with poached egg, shaved cheese, fresh cracked pepper and salt if desired.

To eat, break the yolk and mix well with pasta, top with additional cheese if desired and enjoy!!

OMG Please enjoy! It was one of the best dinners I've had in a long time!! :)
