Basil Pesto Pasta

I dont like pesto that much before, dunno wat happened to me suddenly i started loving this herbs based sauces for pastas very much that too the basil pesto is my recent favourite. Eventhough we get tons of store bought pestos here, i love to make myself my pestos at home. Here comes an another interesting pesto which i picked from Martha Stewart space, i just loved this pesto,not only me my whole family suddenly became pesto lovers.

This basil pesto pasta is definitely a quick,simple,obviously very flavorful, very nutty and filling dish, you can prepare it in a jiffy and am sure everyone will definitely enjoy this super delicious pesto pasta.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Italian event guest hosted by me,event by Julie.
