PESTO PASTA WITH SUN DRIED TOMATOES AND ROASTED ASPARAGUS

A quick and easy dish for those busy weeknights, and it is chockfull of veggies!
Like for this pasta dish here, I tossed the pesto in some simple ingredients like sun dried tomatoes, roasted asparagus and mozzarella cubes, finishing it off with a fried egg, and it was seriously one of the best weeknight meals ever!

It’s so simple and easy to whip up, and my most favorite thing about it is that some of the pesto gets stuck in the crevices of the shell pasta.

AH-MAZING, right?

Plus, this tastes just as good, if not better, as work leftovers since the mozzarella cubes gets all melted/ooey-gooey in between the pasta.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 ounces medium shell pasta
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto
  • 1/3 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
  • 1/3 cup diced mozzarella cubes
  • Fried egg, for serving

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  3. Place asparagus in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast for 8-12 minutes, or until tender but crisp. Let cool before cutting into 1-inch pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, combine pasta, asparagus, pesto, sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella.
  5. Serve immediately with a fried egg, if desired.
