Blanch the asparagus in a pot of salted boiling water until just cooked. Refresh in ice cold water to retain their bite and colour.
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil, add a generous pinch of salt and a splash of olive oil and cook you pasta till al dente.
While this is happening, make your sauce. Mix the cream, grated parmesan, lemon zest and juice. Grind a few grindings of One for All into the cream mixture. Add extra seasoning to taste. Toss the hot pasta through the cream, including a tablespoon or 2 of the hot pasta water. Fold in the basil and asparagus tips.
Check the seasoning and serve immediately with shavings of parmesan.
For a low fat version you can use reduced fat cream.
