Asparagus Pesto

Toss with cooked pasta, or spread on crostini and top with chopped tomatoes and bacon.

From the share:
1 pound fresh asparagus

From your kitchen:
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts or almonds
1/2 cup olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt

Snap off and discard tough ends of asparagus. Cook asparagus in boiling water to cover 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.
Plunge asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.
Coarsely chop asparagus.
Process asparagus, cheese, and remaining ingredients in a food processor 30 seconds to 1 minute or until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.
