Asparagus Fettuccine Alfredo

This recipe has barely any ingredients; just asparagus, parmesan, mascarpone, and fettuccine.

Snap off tough ends from asparagus, then snap stalks into 1 and a 1⁄2-inch pieces. Finely grate Parmesan.

Add pasta to pot with boiling salted water and cook until barely al dente, about 7 minutes. Add asparagus and continue to cook until pasta is al dente and asparagus is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes more. Reserve 1⁄4 cup pasta water, then drain; transfer pasta and asparagus to a bowl. Add mascarpone to same pot; cook over medium-low heat until warmed through, 2–3 minutes. Add pasta and asparagus t
