Every weekend has practically become Italian food weekend for us. We just can’t help it…there’s something so intrinsically satisfying and comforting about Italian food. No other cuisine does it for me as much as Italian. All the carbs make me a very, very happy camper :).
Bonus? Italian is so easy to replicate at home. Quick and tasty? Sign me on…
The recipe I followed is nothing novel or exciting. I was browsing in the library (and as usual I didn’t find anything interesting :(), when I saw this recipe in Cosmopolitan magazine. I did a quick look, realized I had all the ingredients at home already (except for the pine nuts), snapped this photo, and yummy spaghetti was ready within the hour. No one can say I am indecisive…at least not in food-related matters 🙂
And here’s the spaghetti on the snubnose’s plate. She lapped up every little bit of it 🙂
Personally, when I tried it, I realized the pesto could have come out a little more liquidy. I should have added extra olive oil, but apart from that one little nit-pick, I am very happy with our quick n easy pesto. This is definitely one recipe I am repeating often.
