Black Pepper Fettuccine with Chardonnay Sauce and Grilled Asparagus

“We created the Chardonnay sauce to be creamy and flavorful, arousing the senses,” says the Stanford Inn by the Sea coproprietor Jeff Stanford. Ravens’ serves house-made pasta; VT adapted the recipe to use dried fettuccine. Keep extra sauce in the fridge up to five days.
