EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Pesto paste, sold in a tube, contains less oil than prepared basil pesto.

This salad is best served immediately after it’s dressed. If you want to make it ahead, add the tomatoes to the oiled pasta and asparagus in one bowl; refrigerate. Refrigerate the dressing in another container. Combine just prior to serving.
