Cook the spaghetti
While the water heats and the spaghetti cooks, prepare the tomatoes.
Prep and char the tomatoes
- Cut the tomatoes in half.
While the tomatoes cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus. Using a peeler and starting at the base and working toward the tip, thinly shave the asparagus stalks into ribbons. Alternatively, cut the asparagus stalks on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces.
- Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
- Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Divide into two equal portions, one for the pasta and one for garnish.
Cook the asparagus; finish the dish
Reduce the heat to low and stir in the vegan “cheese” sauce, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] white wine, if using, and ½ cup [1 cup] reserved pasta cooking water, adding more water as needed to reach a creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the ingredients are warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the spaghetti and tomatoes and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute.
Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon zest and half the basil, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Measure the shallots.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Snap the woody ends off the asparagus.
- Juice the lemon.
- Strip the basil leaves.
