Last Thursday I got up bright and early knowing that I had a busy day ahead of me. It involved the hitting gym, cleaning the house, getting ready for a family visit and completing the Daring Bakers Challenge. By dinner time I was exhausted and ready to run to the nearest drive through to pick up a burger and fries. That however, would’ve made the trip to the gym earlier in the day a big waste of time. Instead, I decided to look for a meal that was short on time but big on flavor. This quick pasta is just that. There are 4 ingredients and 2 steps. I had this meal on the table in 10 minutes.
For this recipe you can use store bought pesto but I had just purchased a bunch of basil the day before so I made my own. It is fairly easy to make. I will say that a package of pine nuts can be pretty expensive. If you are only using them for this recipe, check the bulk section of your grocery store. I found some there, got exactly the amount I wanted and it only cost a few dollars.
