Do you still have some basil left? Good. This Asparagus Pesto Pasta Salad has an incredible flavor. You get to keep the prettiest parts of the asparagus stalks in the salad, and the rest get blended up with basil, lemon juice, and pine nuts to make a pesto sauce. I left out the nutritional yeast and the tomatoes, although I do think adding another vegetable would be good. And some beans might work to round out the dish. My food processor has gotten a workout this week!
