Now that I have freshly made pesto, I need to use it up! My first idea was pasta with pesto - not very creative, but definitely tasty. You can use whatever pasta you like, but I love gemelli pasta. The twists are perfect for the sauce to cling to. I used a new herb mixture I just bought - Everyday Seasoning from Trader Joe's. I think it added the perfect flavor. The amount of ingredients I used was perfect for one serving.
Recipe: Pasta with Pesto
2.5 oz pasta
2 tbsp pasta, homemade or storebought
freshly grated parmesan
freshly ground Everyday Seasoning (from TJ's)
Bring salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain the pasta and toss with the pesto, adding a little of the pasta water if necessary. Grate some parmesan and grind some spices on top, and enjoy!
