My pasta is summer ready, but I am not! I’ve been cleaning up my diet (well mostly) in preparation for warmer weather. This light and fresh pasta dish really curbs my carb cravings without weighing me down, literally.
I am 100% Italian, and although I prefer homemade pasta any day of the week, adding some quality ingredients like prosciutto, and some parmigano reggiano cheese makes me feel like home 🙂
Pesto (homemade or store-bought)
- Cook pasta until al dente
- Add 2-3 tablespoons pesto while pasta is still hot to mix
- Once pasta has cooled, add diced vegetables and arugula
- Add grated cheese to top
