Fresh nasturtiums add a bright, peppery flavor to this simple but special dish.

  1. Trim asparagus stems. Cut stalks into 2-inch segments. If stalks are fairly thick, cut in half lengthwise.
  2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil. Add asparagus, onions, and mushrooms and sauté over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and white wine and cook 2-4 minutes longer, or until asparagus is bright green. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. While asparagus is cooking, cook fresh fettuccine in boiling salted water until al dente, about 1 minute. Drain, reserving 1/2-cup cooking water. In a large bowl, combine pasta with asparagus mixture and cheese. Toss to mix, adding reserved pasta water if needed to keep moist. Stir in nasturtiums and serve immediately.
