Put the lid and bring to a boil until the stems are soft.

Drain the asparagus and dry them lightly and gently with absorbent paper.

In case you don't find the white asparagus, you can also use the classics greens. The ideal pot for cooking them is theasparagus: high and narrow, allows the sprouts to remain standing during cooking and the tips to be crunchy. If you don't have one, you can also use one normal pot for the pasta, large enough to accommodate the asparagus lying down.

We advise you to leave the asparagus slightly longer al dente, to preserve their beneficial properties, but if you prefer them softer, just continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes.

For best results, carefully observe the cooking times of the egg: they must be firm but with the yolk still quite soft. Eggs were originally mashed with a fork but if you prefer one smoother texture, blend everything with an immersion blender and possibly add a drop of the cooking water of the asparagus.

You can also add a few drops of lemon juice and to the preparation aromatic herbs which you prefer, such as thyme, parsley or marjoram. You can complete the dish by adding slices of raw ham he was born in homemade bread toasted in the oven.
