with Pesto and Asparagus

Select Qty: Dinner for


Classic basil pesto is at the heart of this incredibly tasty and visually beautiful dish. Originating from Italy, pesto is a creamy paste of fresh basil, crushed garlic, pine nuts, olive oil and cheese customarily crushed using a mortar and pestle. Here, the pesto is easily blended using a food processor and tossed with quinoa pasta. Quinoa, a naturally gluten-free ancient seed, is finely ground to create the foundation for this pasta dish that layers flavor and inviting color with fresh tomatoes and asparagus.
