I have been dreaming of going to Italy since my teenage. I always fantasized about Italian culture, the people and their food. Italian food is very simple; they use minimal ingredients and mostly cook with fresh herbs and vegetables they grow in their Kitchen garden. Italian chiefs rely on the quality of ingredients rather in the elaborated preparation. This is the best part I like about Italian cooking, its simple yet delicious. Well today I would be making Spaghetti Pasta with luscious green fresh homemade pesto sauce, I had already shared the recipe for my pesto sauce in my last post. I have given the pasta a healthy twist by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti pasta with addition to vegetable in it. This is an extremely simple recipe which is ready in just 20 mins. All you need to do is Boil the pasta as per the packet instruction and just mix it with freshly made Pesto sauce. Tadaan! Its ready 🙂
