Asparagus Pasta with Pine Nuts and Sun Dried Tomatoes
Here are the ingredients.
Pasta- I like using more unique shapes because they tend to soak up the flavor, but any pasta will do.
Asparagus- Get more than you think you will need so you can snack on it.
Jar of oil packed sun dried tomatoes. The oil will form the sauce. I use a jar that is a little bigger than baby food jar.
1 cup of Pine Nuts- dry toasted is what I used and then I toasted them more at home.
salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.
2. Add your pine nuts to a saute pan with no oil and cook them over med-high heat constantly stirring them. As soon as they start to smell all toasty they are done.
3. Chop asparagus into bite sized pieces.
4. Mix tomatoes with pasta, asparagus and pine nuts and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
