Pasta Salad with Asparagus

I have always loved asparagus, currently especially in combination with roasted nuts. Having a lot of BBQs in summertime, I make a lot of different salads, and a pasta salad is one of our favorite sides. Here’s a quick recipe, that you can also make for a spontaneous BBQ invitation.

  • 1 Lemon
  • Scallions
  • Salt

Here’s how to do it

  • Cook the pasta until al dente and mix with the pesto in a big bowl.
  • Cut the scallions and asparagus into small pieces and fry them in a pan until the asparagus has a light brownish color. Season with salt, pepper and the juice of your lemon. Add the peanuts and roast briefly, then mix both with the pasta.

  • You will reach the best taste, if you keep the salad in the fridge over night.
