Not all green dishes are created equal, and this pasta recipe is definitely overflowing with flavours. Pesto pasta is an Italian dish made with noodles tossed in a sauce made with crushed garlic, pine nuts, salt, basil leaves, Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Sardo and olive oil.
Not all great dishes take time to make, take this pesto pasta for example, as long as you have a pesto sauce handy with you all you need is several minutes and you’re in for a treat. Its fresh, its vibrant, its cheesy and thanks to the cheese, it is also filled with umami.
Any pasta can be used on this dish, I had tried it on penne, ziti, fettucine but I am a simple guy, so a thin spaghetti is my usual preference. As for the serving, you can serve it on its own, with meat or with seafood, either way with pesto on your table you are in for a really nice meal.
I love any homemade pesto! Of course the classic basil one is always the best!
I’m guessing the garlic is in the pesto? I’ve never also added an onion. Great idea. Pretty photos.
I like the addition of onion, Raymund. Pesto is one of our summer favorites!
Simple and divine!!
I love this dish! And yours looks so good. The onion is inspired. Thanks!
I’d like this. Not into those with rich creamy sauces.
