1 cup cooked rotini pasta
3 cubes Eden basil
2 cubes Eden parsley
1 cube Eden garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
½ teaspoon dried mint
½ tablespoon ground walnuts (optional)
Shredded part skim mozzarella
In a small bowl combine the basil, parsley, garlic, olive oil, crushed red pepper, and dried mint. Set the pesto aside.
Place the pasta on a dish or in a bowl. If eating this dish hot, warm the pasta in the microwave for 60 seconds. Spoon the pesto over the pasta and mix to combine. Sprinkle with ground nuts and mozzarella. Enjoy & relax – you’re eating a delicious dish that’s good for you too!
This recipe can be eated hot or cold.
Cook a box of pasta in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week.
I like to use healthier whole wheat or a higher fiber and nutrition pasta.
