Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe

Pesto Pasta Recipe

When the boys are stuck at football practice until late, and I find myself not knowing what to cook for dinner, this Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe is one of my all-time favorites. I am able to prepare one of the fastest (and delicious) meals that my family loves. The best part of this recipe is that it’s simple, less than five ingredients, and can be prepared in just a few short minutes.

This recipe is a gift from one of my dear friends who first made it for me after giving birth to my son Tyler. The recipe is delicious served either hot or cold, and is paired perfectly with a fresh salad and warm garlic bread.
