"Asparagus, goat cheese, and lemon combine to make this lovely and simple spaghetti dish that I often make in the summer. It is super easy and ready in about 15 minutes, so it's a great recipe for dinner midweek or a fast weekend lunch."
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, for 9 minutes. Add asparagus to the pot. Continue cooking until spaghetti is tender yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes. Drain spaghetti and asparagus, reserving some cooking water.
Combine goat cheese, olive oil, basil, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Add hot spaghetti, asparagus, and 2 tablespoons of cooking water; mix well. Season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
