Ingredients

1 pound asparagus
medium-sized
1 x pasta

1 cup basil pesto
*
½ cup bread crumbs

Directions

In a large stone mortar, place pine nuts, basil, garlic and salt and grind with a pestle until paste.

Add cheeses and drizzle in olive oil, beating with a wooden spoon.

Store in jars, topped with extra virgin olive oil.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Bring 6 quarts water to boil and add 2 tablespoons salt.

Set up ice bath next to boiling water.

Trim asparagus and boil one minute.

Drain and refresh in ice bath.

Remove, drain well, and cut into 4-inch to 5-inch pieces and set aside.

Cut pasta into 5-inch squares and drop into same boiling water as asparagus.

Cook one minute until tender. Remove and refresh in ice bath.

Drain on towels and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, stir balsamella, pesto, and grated cheese together until mixed well.

Butter 4 gratin dishes and place one piece of 5-inch pasta on the bottom of each one.

On top of pasta, place the following: 3 pieces of asparagus, followed by 2 tablespoons pesto, followed by another piece of pasta.

Continue with this layering until you have 4 pieces of pasta and 4 layers of asparagus and pesto mixture.

Lay one more piece of pasta on top, followed by a spoonful of pesto mixture and sprinkle each of the 4 gratin dishes with bread crumbs.

Put all 4 dishes in oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until bubbling and golden brown on top.

Remove and serve immediately.
