Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Pasta

See, more pasta! This is not really a new recipe to me, I'm forever making pasta sauces with creme fraiche and lemon but I liked the addition of the asparagus which is something I've never tried before. I love asparagus and only buy it when it's in season, which is so short, so I'm making the most of it!  Delicious!
