Roasted Asparagus Pesto

Good morning! Any other Bostonians a little sick of this rainy, foggy, dreary weather? too.

We could all use a fresh, spring-time recipe - so I thought today would be a good day to share the Roasted Asparagus Pesto recipe I made for a recent Local in Season article.

Although I eat asparagus year round, it's really meant for the spring season - and we all know in-season produce is always the most delicious.

Let's pretend the puddles outside are drying up and that spring is existing. Having a spoonful of this pesto should help make the weather seem a little less dreary.

What are you looking forward to doing most this spring/summer? I'm looking forward to a possible trip to the Cape - I've never been there!


  1. This weather is rough, we haven't seen the sun in days and this morning adam and said it feels like we're living in Alaska.

    On a more important've never been to the cape?! get there stat! and have fun :)

  2. I made a fantastic parsley pesto for lunch today! I love interesting pesto recipes!

  3. So sick of the rain! I am going to Aruba in 2 weeks though, so I'm trying to hold on til then!

    The pesto looks fantastic. Spring asparagus is wonderful!

  4. Megan, Have a wonderful time in Aruba!

    Michelle - I love parsley pesto!! It will be so hard for me to go back to basil after trying so many different varieties.

    Daisy - I do need to get my butt to the Cape. Hopefully sooner than later!
