If you can't find fresh morels, use dried. Chanterelles also taste great in this dish.
3 oz. fresh morel mushrooms, wiped clean, or 1 oz. dried morels, reconstituted in 2 cups of hot water, drained (strain and reserve the liquid), and patted dry
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small shallot, finely chopped (about 1 Tbs.)
1 lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut on the diagonal   into 1 1/2-inch slices
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 oz. linguine or fettuccine
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

If the morels are large, cut them in half lengthwise. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for about 1 min. Add the morels and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 10 min. (If using dried morels, boil the strained soaking liquid until reduced to 1/4 cup. Strain the liquid through a coffee filter and add it with the asparagus and cream for even more flavor.) Add the asparagus, cream, and thyme and simmer until the asparagus is just tender and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 min. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta until al dente, drain it, and toss it with the asparagus and morels. Add the cheese and toss to coat the pasta. Serve immediately in warm bowls.

This recipe is super simple but soooo very good. We can get fresh morels in the early spring and this recipe is the only one that does the taste of morels justice.
