Pasta With Pesto Sauce

“There is nothing like pesto sauce made from basil straight from the garden.”

  • 500 g whole grain linguine or spaghetti (see note below)
  • 1 cup pesto sauce
  • 2 tablespoons reserved pasta water
  • Fresh grated parmesan cheese for garnish
  1. Cook pasta al dente.
  2. Before draining pasta reserve 2 tablespoons pasta water.
  3. Drain pasta.
  4. Add reserved pasta water to pesto sauce in order to warm up sauce and make sauce easier to mix with pasta .
  5. Mix with pasta and serve with extra parmesan cheese

Our favourite whole grain pasta is either Catelli Healthy Harvest Flax Omega-3 pasta or Catelli Multigrain. Both have great fiber yet with a better texture and flavour than traditional whole wheat pasta. I usually serve whole wheat pasta with much heavier flavoured tomato based sauces.

YIELD: 4-6 servings
