Veg noodles accept been accepting their hot additional in the spotlight, but I had never-ever-ever heard of asparagus noodles until I addled accessible the best contempo Aliment Arrangement annual and saw their compound for Asparagus Noodles with Pesto. EXCUSEMEWHAT? Asparagus as noodles? Okay, alright, communicable my breath.

This could be absolutely air-conditioned or absolutely weird.

We, the POY aggregation who is consistently athirst and/or attractive for acceptable ideas, absitively to accord it a try. And afterwards accepting colossal asparagus, testing a few means of prepping, and alive on our abilities with the vegetable peeler, I anticipate we assuredly nailed it. Amiright? Aloof analysis those attractive cardboard ribbons.

I don’t appetite to get too assured actuality back we did borrow this accepted abstraction from them, but I do appetite to go on almanac as saying that I anticipate our adaptation is absolutely a bit bigger than the Aliment Arrangement one. We adapted the noodles for a LOT beneath time because we are all about against to clammy vegetables. We also got rid of the added greens (asparagus arugula? all of it cooked? just, ugh. concoction agency was out of control.) and swapped the arugula for bacon and peas and Pecorino Romano cheese. CONSISTENTLY A ACCEPTABLE IDEA.

I additionally swapped in our admired jarred pesto back it doubles as an improvement and a shortcut.

It’s spring, guys, so obvi pesto is accident on aggregate appropriate now. And you apperceive I adulation bootleg pesto! How abounding times accept we affirmed over this? Anticipate about it: kale pestowalnut pestomagic blooming sauce which is array of like a adored pesto…

But sometimes a babe aloof needs a jar of (ACTUALLY ACCEPTABLE TASTING) store-bought pesto in her abdomen so she can whip up asparagus brainstorm abracadabra in no time. This pesto, for us, is a cool quick meal-builder that does not cede on quality. If you haven’t best up on it over the aftermost 50 years that I’ve been a cool fan, I’ll admonish you afresh that tippy-top affection (at approved prices) is just the DeLallo way.

We bought this being at our bounded Accomplished Foods, but I additionally consistently buy DeLallo articles (pesto included) at Cub Foods for those of you who are reppin’ the Midwest with me.

Here’s how I accept best enjoyed this salad/noodle situation: as a ancillary for my agrarian rice burgers. Break with me.

Sometimes it’s as-is, aloof served as a little ancillary veg dish, and sometimes it’s added of an add-on to my ever-evolving agrarian rice burger stackers. I’ll alike leave off the peas and bacon and aloof go for the pesto asparagus noodles, apparent jane, over top of the agrarian rice burger with a absurd egg and an atrocious bulk of chipotle hot sauce. OMG. Amuse do this for yourself. It can be breakfast OR cafeteria OR dinner, and it is absolutely BEYOND.
