A Tale of Two Pastas

This month is what I think is the last meeting of the online library group, International Cooking. With things returning to "normal", there was talk of discontinuing the group. We will find out tonight...

This month's recipe was Pasta Verde, Green Pasta. It was made with roasted asparagus, fresh spinach, mint, and leeks. The sauce was a lemon vinaigrette.
I used homemade pasta, the recipe called for Penne. 

Chris, not being a fan of most of the ingredients in Pasta Verde dined on Fettuccine Alfredo, which has 4 ingredients - Pasta, Cheese, Butter, and Pasta Water.

I liked the Pasta Verde but I was not in love with it. I would rather have had the Alfredo. The flavors were good, but it was something I cannot imagine going out of my way to make again. It was just lacking something. I was supposed to top the dish with Ricotta Salata which I did not have but I do not think that it was the one thing that would have made the dish a home run.
