But it’s easy to blow your diet when you’re spooning it over spaghetti or lasagna–not to mention your arteries.

How to make a healthy and delicious Pesto Pasta With Veggies
Ingredients: 2 cups basil leaves (or 1 cup cooked fennel bulb, chopped) 1/2 cup pine nuts 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (grated) 1 clove garlic (minced) salt and pepper to taste.
In a food processor combine all ingredients except for the spices for 1-2 minutes until the pine nuts are chopped finely. Add in the spices (if desired) and pulse until blended and smooth. Very delicious on a salad!I promise you will love it!
If you love pesto, this is the recipe for you! It’s a healthy and delicious way to add some flavor to your pasta without all of the unhealthy fats. This pesto also has plenty of vegetables so it’s a great way to get your daily dose of vitamins and minerals. It goes well with the baked ziti and chicken.
This recipe is a bit off the standard Greek recipe because there are no anchovies. If you want to add this to your meals then you can try using fish or just adding some extra lemon juice. I love the idea of using pesto in place of regular mayonnaise but it does have a spinach-like smell.
Pesto pasta sauce
If you love pesto, you’re going to love this pesto pasta sauce. It’s easy and quick to make, and it has a delicious, garlicky flavor. This recipe is perfect for those nights when you don’t have time to cook a full meal, or when you want something quick and easy to eat.
To make this pesto pasta sauce, start by cooking your pasta according to the package directions. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and reserve 1 cup of the water that was used to cook it.
Next, in a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water and the pesto ingredients. Mix well until everything is combined.
Once the pesto is mixed together, put it in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
Finally, add the cooked pasta back into the saucepan and toss everything together well. Serve warm, garnished with fresh chopped parsley if desired. Enjoy!
