Many times I find myself subconsciously making a meal/dessert/etc. because of external stimuli I have experienced earlier in the week. This time I did not realize where my strong craving for pesto had arisen until I had my first bite of this dish. Unknowingly, I had been craving pesto because the day before we had pasta (NOT gluten free) with a spagetti sauce/pesto combo. Also, I had gawked relentlessly at a photo of pesto pasta on Foodgawker only a few days before. Isn’t it funny how the brain works? You think you are being rather creative with your meal selection, but in actuality, you are just reacting to your surroundings. Nonetheless, this pasta was delicious. Rather simple and quick with enough food to feed about 6 people. (It only lasted 4 servings in our household… Cohl has been running quite a bit lately!) This pasta is a great weeknight meal idea since it makes great leftovers. Hope you enjoy!
