Ricotta Gnocchi with Asparagus, Peas, and Morels

['4 cups ricotta (from two 16-ounces containers)', '2 large eggs', '1 cup finely grated Parmesan', '2 teaspoons kosher salt', 'Freshly ground black pepper', '1 cup all-purpose flour', '1 bunch asparagus, trimmed', 'Kosher salt', '2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more', '1/4 pound fresh morel mushrooms', '1 small shallot, finely chopped', '1 cup shelled fresh peas (from about 1 pound pods) or frozen peas, thawed', '1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter', 'Freshly ground black pepper', 'Chopped fresh chives, finely grated Parmesan, and finely grated lemon zest (for serving)', 'Parmesan', 'Finely grated lemon zest']

Line a baking dish with 3 layers of paper towels; spoon ricotta onto paper towels and let sit 20 minutes (if the ricotta is too wet, the dough won't hold together).
Combine ricotta, eggs, Parmesan, and salt in a food processor; season with pepper and process until smooth. Add flour and pulse just to combine (mixture should be smooth and fairly wet). Transfer gnocchi mixture to a pastry bag fitted with 1/2" round tip or a large resealable plastic bag.
DO AHEAD: Gnocchi mixture can be made 1 day ahead. Cover pastry tip and chill.
Cook asparagus in a large pot of boiling salted water until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Using tongs or a mesh strainer, transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool; drain. Slice asparagus on the diagonal into bite-size pieces, leaving tips intact.
Reduce heat so water is simmering. If using a resealable plastic bag for gnocchi mixture, cut a 1/2" opening in bottom of bag. Working in 3 batches, pipe dough into pot, cutting off 1" lengths with a paring knife and letting dough drop into water. Cook until doubled in size, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer gnocchi to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Reserve 1/4 cup cooking liquid.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook morels, tossing occasionally, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add shallot and cook, tossing occasionally, until shallot and morels are soft, about 5 minutes; set aside.
Add gnocchi, asparagus, peas, butter, and reserved cooking liquid to skillet with morels. Cook, tossing gently, until vegetables are warm and sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with chives, Parmesan, and lemon zest.
