Asparagus Pesto Pasta Salad Recipe
Country Mouse City Spouse
I’ll admit it… I have a pasta addiction.
And when summer rolls around, I am making pasta salad on a regular basis. I think it is one of the more versatile side dishes, especially in the hot summer months. Who wants to heat up the kitchen to cook some boring side dish when you can whip up a big bowl of pasta salad and have it at the ready? This Asparagus Pesto Pasta Salad fits the bill for convenience and for taste, as far as I’m concerned.
This is one of my favorite pasta salads, as it’s basically a meal in a bowl.
With the addition of all the veggies, this pasta salad is really filling and yummy!!
I use my Asparagus Pesto recipe (which I have frozen in cubes in my freezer) to make this, but any pesto will work. You may want to change up the vegetables to match the flavor of the pesto, but these veggies mix well with a store-bought basil pesto as well.
I hope you enjoy this pasta salad as much as I do!
