Purple Passion

Another purple vegetable to add to the mix.

Another purple vegetable to add to the mix.

My husband has a love affair with purple.  Purple clothes, purple potatoes, purple carrots and now purple asparagus.  He had a short list of items to purchase at the farmers market.  He surprised me with purple asparagus and I loved the idea.  I made Pesto Pasta with Purple Asparagus and Peas.  Lots of p’s in the recipe title.  To boiling salted water, I added the pasta and with three minutes remaining added the asparagus and peas.  Drained the pasta, peas and asparagus and added it back into the same pot with pesto and some of the salted pasta water.  Mixed it all together and the main dish was finished.  It was fast and quite tasty!  Definitely a keeper recipe that I created on a whim.  Sometimes, those are the best recipes.
