Creamy Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe



At times, we need to indulge in very simple & tasty food right, which saves our cooking time & at the same time makes our heart & tummy full ! This pasta always does that to me. A busy eve when you do not have time to cook an elaborate dinner or a lazy afternoon & craving for some quick lunch? Try this then !! Having shared the Basil Pesto recipe with you, I thought I should share this simple pasta recipe too. Check here for tips on how to cook pasta. Enjoy :)

I Took: 20 minutes

Serves: 1 person


I Used:

Pasta (I used Penne) - 1 cup
Basil Pesto - ¼ cup
Parmesan Cheese - ¼ cup
Olive Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - As Needed
Pepper - As Needed


The Way:

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat
  2. Add the basil pesto & stir it
  3. Once the pesto is warm add the parmesan cheese & mix. You can add the pasta boiled water if required to thin out the sauce
  4. Add the pasta & mix well so that the sauce is incorporated. Add salt & pepper to taste
Cheers,
Chitz
