This was my second time making this pasta dish and we love it! It's been a few weeks since I made this (I'm behind on my blogging!), but I do believe it took me longer than 30 minutes to make.....both times I made it. There's just quite a few steps you have to do that makes it take longer (at least for me) - rehydrating the dried porcini mushrooms, trimming and cutting asparagus, and mincing a few other things. Since this has white wine in it, I think it pairs well with the simple sauteed chicken breasts (pg. 191) w/white wine sauce (pg. 196).
