Cook's Notes

To hard-cook eggs, cover them in a medium saucepan with one inch of water and bring to a boil, then remove from heat and cover for 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to an ice-water bath.

    This recipe is so ridiculously good that it will definitely end up in the regular rotation and probably be the favorite. However, after making it twice, it seems a little easier to integrate the cheese before adding the asparagus. In fact, next time I make it, I am tempted to make the sauce (cheese, lemon, pasta water) in a separate bowl, stir it into noodles, stir it into asparagus, plate the noodles, top with asparagus, then top with pepper. Not only will that be easier but it would make it look nicer on the plate. I am not super into presentation, but the presentation was very messy when I did it the way the instructions suggest.
