Pesto di asparagi
- First remove the woody ends of the asparagus. Peel the stalks a little to remove impurities. Then wash thoroughly.
- Bring a pot with water and a little salt to a boil and cook the asparagus in it for about 20 minutes. Then remove it, drain and leave to cool.
- Then put the cooked asparagus in the cup of the hand blender. Grate the parmesan and pecorino and add to the cup along with the pine nuts and basil.
- Add a little olive oil and mix gently on low speed with the hand blender. Gradually add the remaining olive oil until the pesto has a nice creamy consistency. Finally, season with salt and enjoy!
