Pesto Pasta


As I said, I froze a batch of pesto for lil' sis to take with her to school. Lil' sis loves pesto pasta so much that when she was engrossed with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the only time she paused was to gulp down a plate or two.

Pesto is quick and easy to make, and as a pasta, it's even quicker and easier.

Pesto Pasta

You'll need:
1 batch of pesto
Whatever type of pasta you wish

Boil pasta until al dente. Drain.

In a saute pan, add a few drizzles of olive oil, dump in pasta, add pesto. Toss thoroughly and serve. So simple.

If you wish, you could make it a pesto cream pasta by dissolving 1 tblsp of cornstarch in 1 cup milk or cream. Add to pesto pasta and let simmer for a few minutes until thickened. Add chicken if you wish.

Enjoy!
