Asparagus Pesto Pasta
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
4 servings
I found this on the back of a tag for the Majesty asparagus I had picked up at the market. It was really enjoyable, and so easy to prepare, so I thought I ought to share! I used my blender, so I roughly chopped some of the bigger ingredients (asparagus, pecans) before putting them in, but from what I have heard of the mightiness of the food processor, you might be good to go without doing so. Use your knowledge of your tools to decide how you want to approach it :) I have also successfully served this over gluten free pasta (brown rice penne).
