Springtime Lemon Asparagus NoodlesThis is such a popular spring recipe from Eating for IBS! It's perfect with first-of-the-season asparagus, and the lovely bright green color is so welcome after winter. The Tummy Fiber not only adds extra soluble fiber for digestive stability, it also gives the sauce a rich, velvety creaminess that is just luscious.
Servings: Makes 4
1 lb. fresh asparagus, tough ends trimmed
zest (grated yellow skin) of 1 fresh lemon
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Acacia Tummy Fiber
1 lb. angel hair pasta or noodles of choice
1/4 cup soy or rice Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces, setting aside tips. In a large stockpot cook asparagus stems in 5-6 quarts boiling water with 1 tablespoon salt until very tender (about 7-9 minutes). Transfer asparagus with a slotted spoon to a blender (do not drain pot). Cook asparagus tips in same boiling water until just tender, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer tips with slotted spoon to colander (do not drain pot).
Puree asparagus stems (not the tips) with lemon zest, olive oil, Tummy Fiber, and 3/4 cup asparagus cooking water until smooth.
Cook pasta in boiling asparagus cooking water until it's still very al dente (firm to the tooth). Reserve 2 cups cooking water and drain pasta. In drained stockpot, add pasta, asparagus tips, asparagus sauce, and 1/2 cup reserved water.
Cook over high heat, stirring, about 4-5 minutes until pasta is done to taste and coated with sauce, adding a little more cooking water (1/4 cup at a time) if necessary. Stir in soy/rice Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Your IBS Diet Cheat Sheet is my daily go-to reference for how to manage what's left of my battle-scarred guts after years of severe IBD and several gut altering surgeries. I've been dealing with debilitating gut issues for the past 20 years and yours is the most helpful information I've found.
Your books, website, e-newsletters and products have all helped me make more forward progress towards good health in the past 9 months (since I first found you) than anything else I've come across in my many years of researching.
Thank you, Heather, for being an advocate for IBS research and support and for providing information and ongoing encouragement for those of us suffering (often silently and invisibly) with digestive disorders.
Hugs to you! I am so happy you're doing better after such a long struggle! ~ Heather
