A special thanks to our friends at Three Farmers for this delicious recipe



60g basil (approx. 2 large hand fulls)

½ cup toasted sunflower seeds or cashews

¼ cup Mary Jane (hulled hemp seeds)

2 tbsp lemon juice

3 garlic cloves

½ cup parmesan cheese

¾ cup Three Farmers camelina oil

Pasta Salad Ingredients:

4 cups cooked noodles (may use, rice, quinoa or couscous)

1 bunch green onions, sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

12 slices prosciutto, chopped

12 asparagus, diced large

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook your pasta, or grain, to desired doneness.  Strain, rinse in cold water to cool and toss 1-2 tbsp of camelina oil around it to ensure it doesn’t stick.

Heat 1tbsp of camelina oil in a pan on the stove.  Toss in the diced asparagus and chopped prosciutto in the pan and stir fry for approx. 3 min, or until nicely browned.  Ensure to keep a slight crunch to the asparagus and do not overcook.

Now add all the ingredients to the pasta and toss with ¼ cup of the pesto.  Mix until the pesto is evenly distributed.  Add more or less pesto if desired.  Season with salt and pepper.

Serves well warm or cold.

TIP:  If you find you have left over pesto, freeze it in ice cube trays for later use.
