Pasta Pesto is my “oh no what are we eating” dinner when the day has gotten away from me, or my fallback when we need to go grocery shopping and I have nothing else. It is also a good meal for Wednesday nights when we’re rushing to eat and get out the door to church!
- Boil your pasta
- add a TBSP (depending on how much you make) of Pesto* and stir.
- it’s especially nice with a little grated cheese.
*I haven’t yet made our own pesto – I buy it in a jar but you hardly use any with the pasta. There are two types: tomato or olive oil, parsley, garlic, pine nuts etc. unopened it sits in the cupboard and once opened keeps for weeks/months in the fridge. Even my daughter (who is two) loves it.
I suppose I am cheating this week since it really isn’t a recipe but like I said, it is my fallback pasta which we eat a couple times a month! Have a good pesto recipe for me? I’d love to hear it!
