In a heavy pot, heat oil until the surface begins to move. Stir in garlic, mushrooms and asparagus and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender.

Add tomatoes, white beans, basil and Parmesan and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Squeeze in lemon juice. Stir in pasta and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper. Heat through and serve garnished with grated Parmesan and chopped fresh basil.
