Pesto Marinara Pasta


To kick start the week, I'm presenting this dish Pesto Marinara Pasta for Presto Pasta founded by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast.

I would love to tell you that I blended the pesto myself. Fresh pesto would have made such a difference to this dish! But truth be told, our basil plant did not survive my "green fingers" hence it has to come from a jar.

I was searching for an idea to cook Marinara with-especially with my find in my previous post. Now, it isn't often but the husband then fiance was actually the one who put his book down, turned to me late one night and said..... what about pesto?

Hence...


Pesto Marinara Pasta
250 grams of Spaghetti
200 grams of seafood marinara mix
garlic
crack pepper

Cook pasta, drain and set aside. Gently heat pesto in a deep pan till the lovely smell emerged. Add garlic and fry seafood. When seafood is nearly done. Pop the pasta back in the pan and give it a good toss. Serve with crack pepper and fresh salad.


Get cooking and send me your entry for Presto Pasta! =)

This is the kind of pasta recipe a working woman needs - come home from work, pull it together in a heartbeat, pour the wine, eat.

Sounds good to me!
