Pasta col pesto di asparagi


3 cloves garlic minced
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
250 gr. chopped asparagus
30 gr. chopped onion
80 gr. fresh basil
250 gr. pasta
Parmesan cheese grated


Quick Pesto Sauce: Sauté 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 to coat. 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 bread and have additional parmesan cheese available at the table.
