Pesto Pasta


My three-year-old took one look at this pasta and said, “Ew! I don’t like green noodles!” I begged her to try it, and shockingly, she did. She had two bowls—and asked for it again the next day!

Still, if your kids really won’t touch it, skip the pesto part. The cream sauce itself is heaven!


1. In an eight-quart pot, melt butter. Add flour, mixing vigorously to avoid clumping (a whisk is helpful). Add milk. Cook for about five minutes, until sauce thickens slightly. Add cheese and mix well. Set aside.
2. In a food processor, place pesto ingredients and process until a creamy consistency is reached.
3. Add the pesto to the cream sauce and toss with prepared pasta.


For a shortcut, use store-bought pesto.
