Asparagus Pasta Con Pesto

Ingredients
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced asparagus
  • 1/8 cup chopped onion (red or yellow)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces pasta
  • grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions

Saute garlic, onion, and basil in olive oil until the garlic and onion turns light brown. Do not over cook. Set aside and keep warm. Prepare the pasta of your choice according to package directions except for the following: Add 1 to 2 cups additional water Just before water begins to boil, add the asparagus or the vegetables of your choice. When the water begins to boil add the pasta and cook according to directions. Drain the pasta and vegetable mixture and pour the pesto sauce over the top, tossing lightly. Top with parmesan cheese and serve. You can also serve the pasta direct from the cooking pot to the plates and then add the pesto. This eliminates having to wash another bowl. Serve with french bread and have additional parmesan cheese available at the table. Makes 2 to 4 servings depending on appetite. Variation: Asparagus can be substituted with broccoli, string beans or zucchini.
