Here’s a quick way to enjoy one of Spring’s best offerings: Asparagus
Steam or boil a bunch of asparagus. Cook until tender but not overcooked. Approximately 5 minutes. Puree the cooked vegetables in a blender, adding a couple of peeled garlic cloves, a handful of almonds, pinch of salt and pepper, and olive oil. Pour the hot puree over cooked pasta sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and chopped basil. Enjoy.
