Quick Pesto Pasta

This is the perfect cheesy Italian comfort food for a busy night when you only have 10 minutes to make dinner. The sauce is a little expensive but when you consider that you’re only spending about $7 on a meal for two with leftovers it’s not so bad. You could always use a less expensive store-bought pesto, or better yet make your own fresh. I would love to try making the pesto fresh sometime, but some of us are plant-killers who can’t keep the variety of herbs alive long enough to make fresh. I think that I am destined to rely on pre-made pesto for the time being.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Package Bowtie Pasta
  • Buitoni Basil Pesto ( I use Reduced Fat sometimes to save calories, but it’s not quite the same)
  • Toasted Pine Nuts
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

Cook pasta according to package directions.
Drain pasta.
Mix in Buitoni Basil Pesto (or pesto of your choice)
Stir in toasted pine nuts.
Sprinkle with fresh grated parmesan.
