I have been reminiscing about my stay at Tree of Life last spring and all the wonderful aspargus dishes we had. Here is my inspired dish. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Recipe Directions

First lightly salt zucchini and set aside to soften.

Second in a food processor pulse pinenuts until finely ground then add asparagus and garlic. Pulse some more. Add basil last and enough olive oil to make a nice paste and pulse until totally combined.

Clean out food processor to start walnuts. Add soaked walnuts and all spices togather in food proccesor and pulse until you get a ground texture.

Drain any liquid off the zucchini and top with pesto and sprinkle with spiced walnuts. Enjoy!

just tried this tonight and it was excellent. i like a cheesy taste in my pesto so i added nutritional yeast, and also a little sea salt. had it with kelp noodles instead of zucchini. i LOVE the sausage! thank you so much for the recipe. delicious.

This sounds delicious. I love the seasoning mix for sausages- fennel, garlic, red pepper... I'm excited to try.
