  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat and fry the asparagus for 3-4 mins until just tender and golden on the edges.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the gnocchi in a large pan of boiling water for 2-3 mins until tender, then drain, reserving a cupful of the cooking water. Toss the gnocchi into the pan with the asparagus, peas, cream cheese, lemon juice and reserved water and stir until well combined. Season well and serve with the extra lemon zest.
