Method

Cook pasta according the package directions. Drain and rinse, and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the asparagus into thirds, toss in olive oil and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Mix the pasta, black beans, corn, asparagus, basil, and superseed blend together in a bowl.

To make the sun dried-tomato pesto, blend all ingredients together in a food processor.

Mix a 3-4 tbsp of the pesto into the pasta salad and taste. Add more pesto if desired.
