    Chef Mean Green's Note:

    I saw this recipe on Foodnetwork (Everyday Italian) and thought it looked so delicious so I ended up trying it right away. To make a long story short, I didn't have the asparagus that it called for (or at least any fresh), and my local grocery store didn't have any at the time. I ended up improvising this a little to fit what I had on hand. I used two heads of broccoli and I thought it was fabulous.

    carbonara pasta

    Basil Aioli


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. Transfer the asparagus to a bowl of ice water and let sit until cool, about 5 minutes. Remove from the water, remove the rubber band, and cut into 1-inch pieces.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, add the pasta to the large pot of salted water used to cook the asparagus and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta into a large bowl. Add the Basil Aioli, cut asparagus, shaved cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and place on a long, rectangular serving dish.
    3. 3
      Place the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the eggs and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry the eggs to your liking. Place the eggs on top of the pasta and serve immediately.
    4. 4
      Combine the garlic, egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice, basil, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a food processor and run the machine to mix. With the machine running slowly drizzle in the vegetable and olive oil. Basil Aioli can be kept, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

      Made for My Three Chefs June 2012. This was quite tasty although the combination of the food is a little jarring at first. My Aioli didn't come out looking like what I usually eat and this may have just been me. Both housemates loved it, so this could come down to personal taste. Thank you for sharing.

      May I also suggest that the recipe has you do the Aioli first?
