As I'm writing this post I'm also going through cooking withdrawal. I'm in the process of cleaning all the food out of my fridge, but I'm so hungry and so wishing I had leftovers of this pesto pasta. My stomach is literally rumbling. Earlier this week, I figured I would finally give up on trying to nourish my fragile basil plant. I plucked all of its leaves and turned it into this delicious pesto. As I mentioned in my previous post. My basil plant decided it doesn't like sun, it doesn't like shade, it doesn't like water, and it doesn't like growing. Meanwhile, my parent's have basil that is literally taking over their deck. Totally stealing theirs for the rest of the Summer.
1 1/2 cups basil pesto
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil diced
1/2 cup roasted red pepper diced
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 pound bow-tie pasta cooked according to package directions
Combined pasta with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, red peppers. Top with the grated parmesan cheese.
