Asparagus and Pea Ragout

Asparagus and Pea Ragout

Only three weeks of asparagus season left to go. This is a simple dish of fresh vegetables and to me at least the star of the show are the fresh peas.

Such a beautiful green color. It's too bad that we can't hang on to asparagus season for longer.
