Spring season is in full swing! I am enjoying the warmer weather, the beautiful and colorful flowers blooming and cooking with the variety of spring vegetables are available this season.
One of my favorite spring recipes that my family love is the Spring pea and asparagus pasta salad with pancetta. It is delicious, colorful and can be eaten cold or hot. Perfect for your next pot luck party or backyard picnic.
Nothing better than my homemade pesto to bind all the ingredients together. The creaminess from this pesto adds a crunchy, garlicky and nutty layer of flavor to this spring dish.
Here is what you need:
- 1 box of farfalle pasta @jovial gluten free is my fave
- 1 cup of peas
- 1 lb of asparragus
- 1/4 lb of pancetta
- 1 small shallot
- 2 Tbsp of pesto
- Shaved pecorino romano to garnish
It is easy and tasty. So let's get cooking!
