Asparagus pasta salad with cannelini and feta

I have a stack of recipes to post and get into my memories, so there will be more of that in the next few weeks.

Asparagus Pasta Salad with Cannellini and Feta

12 oz penne
1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1" pieces
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
4 oz feta, crumbled
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
4 green onions, thinly sliced
4 strips lemon zest, cut into very thin pieces
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill

1. Cook the pasta in salted water until 3 minutes short of the package directions for al dente.
2. Add asparagus to pasta and boil for remaining 3 minutes.
3. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
4. Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, and 1/2 cup of feta in a large bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Add pasta, asparagus, beans, scallions, lemon zest, parsley, dill, and remaining feta. Toss and season with salt and pepper.

NOTES: Serves 8
