    Lighter & Leaner Pesto Pasta

    Guys, if you like pesto, you've gotta try this one! I made it for the first time last night and Pete loved it!

    LIGHTER & LEANER PESTO PASTA

    Pesto:

    1 1/2 cups chopped fresh basil
    6 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/3 cup water
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Combine ingredients one at a time in a blender or food processor, blending until smooth and creamy. Add more water if needed to obtain a pourable consistency. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

    Pasta:

    1 lb. penne pasta

    Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain pasta, return to pan and add 1 cup of pesto sauce while hot. This dish can be eaten warm or refrigerated. Set aside the leftover pesto sauce to use as a dip for vegetables or as a spread on bread.

    Toppings:

    4 cups chopped raw zucchini
    4 cups chopped tomato
    2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

    Top pesto pasta salad with chopped vegetables and drizzle with vinegar. Makes seven servings.

    Per Serving, including pesto, pasta and vegetables:

    ENJOY!!
