Chef Lydia Shire is making a mouthwatering asparagus sformato and pairing it with a homemade watercress salad. Before getting started, she explains that sformato is a savory Italian custard baked in molds. She describes the colorful dish as spring on a plate. The secret to the extra-rich flavor is replacing milk with heavy cream. For a kick, she adds a pinch of red pepper flakes. When done making the sformato, she pairs it with smoked bacon and asparagus.
