 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      lb            fresh asparagus
    6      oz            penne
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
    2      teaspoons     grated lemon zest -- about 2 lemons
      1/8  cup             fresh lemon juice
                         salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
      1/2  cup           coarsely chopped roasted red peppers -- optional
    3      tablespoons   toasted pine nuts
    8      tablespoons   shaved fresh Parmesan cheese
 
 Trim asparagus and steam until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.  Cut
 into 1-inch lengths.  Cook pasta, drain and place in a warmed, large
 serving bowl; toss with oil.  Add asparagus, lemon zest, lemon juice,
 salt, pepper, roasted peppers (if using) and pine nuts.  Gently toss
 to mix.  Add cheese and toss; taste and adjust seasonings.  Serve
 immediately.
