To make the sauce, add siggi’s yogurt, feta, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, and half of the olive oil to a small bowl and stir with a spoon to combine. Set aside.

Heat remaining olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until bright green in color and just cooked. Transfer to a large serving bowl.

Add sauce and cooked pasta to the bowl and mix. Top with additional feta, parsley, and red pepper flakes, if desired.
