I recently posted on Facebook that last year around this time, I experienced a meal that I still have dreams about. Homemade pasta will do that sort of thing to you.
Fast forward to this year. With my Italian friend miles away (literally in Italy), my pasta confidence was lacking but the meal was calling my name, so I did the next best thing. I purchased fresh pasta from the store (locals, Heinen’s has some awesome options!) and mixed it up with homemade pesto.
Even shorter on time? Buy the fresh pesto. You’ve got a two ingredient dinner at this point – fresh pasta + pesto. Well three, let’s not forget parmesan on top.
And of course sliced heirloom tomatoes on the side rock my world. I mean, look at that meal.
Make it this week. Promise?
