908_6_1371633785_lrg

Ingredients
2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
40 g blue cheese
40 g goats cheese
4 sprigs of fresh marjoram
1 lemon
250 g tagliolini
1 small bunch of fine asparagus
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil

Method
Place a large pan of salted boiling water on a high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat
to low. Place a large heatproof bowl over the saucepan, add the cheeses and stir until melted.
Pick in most of the marjoram leaves, grate in the zest of half a lemon and stir to combine.
Remove the bowl from the heat and set aside, then turn up the heat to high and add a pinch of
salt. Once the water is boiling, add the pasta and cook according to pack instructions.

When there’s about 2 minutes left to go, halve the asparagus at an angle and add to the pasta.
Drain in a colander, reserving a cupful of cooking water, and add to the cheese. Toss to coat,
loosening with a splash of the reserved cooking water, if needed.

Place on a serving platter, grate a little more lemon zest on top, scatter over the reserved
marjoram and season with a good pinch of black pepper. Drizzle over a little extra virgin olive
oil and serve.
