Asparagus Pasta Con Pesto

3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup chopped or sliced asparagus
1/8 cup chopped onion (red or yellow)
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
8 ounces pasta
grated Parmesan cheese

Saute garlic, onion, and basil in olive oil until the garlic and
onion turns light brown. Do not over cook. Set aside and keep warm.

Prepare the pasta of your choice according to package directions
except for the following:

Add 1 to 2 cups additional water

Just before water begins to boil, add the asparagus or the vegetables
of your choice. When the water begins to boil add the pasta and
cook according to directions.

Drain the pasta and vegetable mixture and pour the pesto sauce over
the top, tossing lightly. Top with parmesan cheese and serve. You
can also serve the pasta direct from the cooking pot to the plates
and then add the pesto. This eliminates having to wash another
bowl. Serve with french bread and have additional parmesan cheese
available at the table. Makes 2 to 4 servings depending on appetite.

Variation: Asparagus can be substituted with broccoli, string beans
or zucchini.
