Chowhounds have flipped for penne with asparagus, sage, and peas, which is full of bright, springlike flavor. kattyeyes added about a quarter pound of pancetta and left out the butter, while maisonbistro added lemon zest.

kattyeyes has also enjoyed angel hair pasta with crab and country ham recently.

For more spring flavor, check out CHOW’s Cooking with Spring Ingredients. For more on pasta and what it pairs well with, see CHOW’s When Pasta Met Sauce.
