I did not realize it is relatively popular to make a pesto pasta until this accidental dish came together.
It was pasta night (...not that I have a designated pasta night. I was just in the rare mood for it) and so I rummaged through the fridge and cupboards: What do I have on hand?
Sauce? Meh. Don't care for sauce.
I was intent on making a butter sauce, but in the last throws of putting this meal together, got guilty about the fat content. I then noticed some fresh pesto at the rear of the fridge.
Interesting, I thought. Well, why not?
I had never had pesto pasta.
But this came quite nicely together. And I am sure the fat content was much higher using this oil laden pesto, but ah well.
You can't always win.
