The ultimate 10 minute Pesto Pasta with Asparagus and Sun Dried Tomato – the quickest and most delicious homemade meal your taste buds are gonna LOVE.
Yep, homemade pesto and all. The mortar and pestle shot is just a pretty face (guilty), but with the use of our dear friend ‘food processor’ this dish is gonna go down in under 10 minutes. For real, pop your pasta in boiling water and by the time it’s finished you’re ready to go. A quick toast of the pine nuts, no more than 1 minute to chuck everything in the processor to blend and a speedy fry of the asparagus and sun dried tomato just to soften them. The time/taste trade off for this neat little dish is truly is amazing.
This recipe is actually inspired by a combination of a few dishes I’ve been devouring lately. The pesto inspired by Avocado, Rocket Pesto Pasta and the Sun Dried Tomato aspect comes from one of my fav quick fix dinners Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sundried Tomato. This dish as a whole has some beautiful flavours and some even more gorgeous textures. I love throwing in some bocconcini for a smooth creamy touch and mixing some toasted pine nuts for a nice little crunch. The tender asparagus, the silky pesto, UGH so tasty.
The quantities below is gonna give you a pretty big batch. Fantastic opportunity to feed 4+ or even chuck in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch. You could even cut the pasta, use half the pesto and drizzle the rest over a caprese salad or a nice chunky chicken breast. That reminds me, Tomato and Fried Mozzarella Stack anyone? Okay, so many pesto dreams too little time. Let’s tuck into the recipe shall we? Let me know how you get on folks and I’ll catch you on the next post. Enjoy!
