Thermomix Asparagus Pesto

Thermomix recipe 100% made in Italy for Asparagus Pesto
Thermomix Asparagus Pesto

I prepared the Thermomix Asparagus Pesto last week and I froze the leftover in glass jars.

I used the pesto to season pasta that both my partner and I loved, I think it’s also perfect for those who don’t tolerate the taste of asparagus very well.

Another idea could be: add the Thermomix Asparagus Pesto to the béchamel sauce to make a more indulgent version of the vegetable lasagna.

If you don’t have pine nuts, you can easily substitute them with almonds or cashews as I did.

I just wish you a good day and leave you with the recipe to prepare the Thermomix Asparagus Pesto.

See you at the next recipe!
