  • Summary

    This corkscrew pasta turns sophisticated with a creamy no-cook sauce. It's a dream to make: Just whisk together goat cheese, pasta water, and butter, and toss with cavatappi and asparagus.

    Ingredients

    • 2 bunches asparagus (2 pounds total), tough ends removed
    • 4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
    • 12 ounces cavatappi or other short pasta
    • 1 small log soft goat cheese (5 ounces), crumbled
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives, for garnish
