Is the asparagus at your neighborhood market standing a bit taller--brighter, greener, fresher--these days? That’s because peak asparagus season hits the Midwest, like, now.
At Piccolo Sogno, the Italian restaurant with possibly the best patio in the entire city, chef Tony Priolo is spotlighting the spring veggie with a simple, rustic dish of homemade farro pasta with asparagus and mushrooms.
Re-create it at home for Meatless Monday or--we just made this up!--Farro Friday. Sub in store-bought pasta if you must, but trust us, the farro triangles are fun to make from scratch.
