Jun 11, 2010: Pasta with Pesto Cream Sauce

Now that I've made pesto I wanted to add some to pasta. Also, I had about 1/2 C of heavy cream in the fridge that I wanted to use.

Pesto Pasta
2 Cloves Garlic, smashed
1 T Olive Oil
1/2 C Heavy Cream
1 C Pesto

1. Saute the garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Just trying to flavor the oil.

2. Add the heavy cream and pesto... stir and allow to slightly thicken.

3. Cooks some pasta... at the last minute I decided to add peas and corn.
The peas and corn were added to the boiling pasta during the last 2 minutes.

4. Slowly add sauce... amount is to your liking. :-)

Pesto, Pasta, Parmesan... Simple and delicious.
