Asparagus Spaghetti

My grandparents have made Asparagus Spaghetti every year for as long as I can remember.  On more than one occasion, I have helped myself to three servings of this delicious dish.  This recipe uses two items from this week’s CSA share:  asparagus and green onions.  Also, I promise my food photography skills will get better as my blog progresses.
