Red Pesto Pasta
The Red Pesto Pasta, red, fresh, fragrant and so so yummy. Who doesn't like a nice RED pasta right? The colour itself is so attractive and with the little hints of parmesan cheese making this simple red pesto sauce, a sauce to die for. It is also a super simple recipe than can be whipped up in under 15 minutes and makes for a great change to the classic green pesto sauce.
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 and roasted red peppers really does get you drooling. So go get yourself onto my RED PESTO RECIPE and make this pesto pasta!
All I see is Red and Flavour
Start by slicing your olives into small pieces.
Set your pasta of choice to boil according to package instructions but take it out 1 minute earlier than the recommended time.
4tb Red Pesto Sauce
Pasta of Choice
In a pan add on medium high heat, toast a hand full of pine nuts and set aside. This will give the dish the nice extra crunch it deserves.
In a pan add in a little bit of oil on high heat and fry off your olives for a minute, then add in 4 table spoons of your pesto sauce and begin to mix it around till you smell the wonderful aroma it is giving out.
Add your pasta long with some pasta water to the sauce and give it a good mix together. If its still a bit dry add in a little bit more pasta water.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and a healthy serving of parmesan cheese.
And there you have it! fresh pesto pasta within a couple of minutes. Serve up with some fresh basil leaves and maybe some extra cheese.
