    Chef Kate's Note:

    A delightful pasta which I clipped out of the Times about 25 years ago and it is still a great meal--just add salad, wine and dessert. Broccoli can be substituted for the asparagus; other blue veined cheeses for the gorgonzola--though the gorgonzola does melt so beautifully into the sauce.

    1. 1
      Remove all sinew and cartilege from the chicken breast and cut into strips about 1 and 1/2 inches long and a half inch wide.
    2. 2
      Scrape and trim the asparagus, discarding any tough ends, and cut on the diagonal into one and half lengths.
    3. 3
      Drop the asparagus into rapidly boiling water and cook for just a few moments--they should still be crisp--and drain and reserve, keeping warm.
    4. 4
      Cook the pasta in rapidly boiling salted water until al dente and drain and reserve, keeping warm.
    5. 5
      Heat the butter in a casserole and add the chicken strips, stirring and seasoning with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, cooking less than a minute, until the chicken just begins to change color.
    6. 6
      Add the asparagus and stir.
    7. 7
      Add the shallots and cook briefly, about 30 seconds.
    8. 8
      Add the cream, hot red pepper (or pepper flakes) and the tarragon and stir.
    9. 9
      Break the gorgonzola cheese into small lumps and add it, cooking just until the cheese melts.
    10. 10
      Add a generous grinding of black pepper and the tarragon and stir.
    11. 11
      Add the drained pasta and toss well.
    12. 12
      Serve with grated parmesan on the side.

      What a great recipe this was! I didn't have the chili pepper, so I added some of Emerald's Essence as well a bit more Gorgonzola. My husband asked to preserve this recipe. Thank you for posing. Rita

      Wonderful flavor! I doubled this recipe to serve our company and it went over very nicely! Well balance of delicately flavored sauce with just a hint of hot combined the chicken and pasta. I will definitely make this again. We enjoyed it so much. Thanks, Kate!

      Oh WOW! This is very easy to put together and the gorgonzola cheese melts into the cream making a delicious sauce for the pasta. I cooked the asparagus in the microwave and used a jalapeno pepper. I used fresh taragon from my garden.
