Classic Pesto Pasta

Status bar.jpg

The classic Pesto Pasta, green, fresh, fragrant and so so yummy. Who doesn't like a nice green pasta right? The colour itself is so attractive and with the little hints of parmesan cheese it is just an all around flavourful dish. It is also a super simple recipe than can be whipped up in under 15 minutes. 

You could easily go to the store to get a simple bottle of pesto sauce and just follow along this recipe to beef it up to make a dish exploding with flavour, buttttt I would suggest trying to make your own fresh pesto. The difference in the fresh basil flavour is LARGEEEEE. So go get yourself onto my PESTO RECIPE and make this pesto pasta!
