How to make homemade Pesto + Pasta with sun dried tomatoes

How to make homemade Pesto + Pasta with sun dried tomatoes

Prep time: 15 Mins

Total cook time: 25 mins

Ingredients:

  • Spinach leaves
  • Pasta ( I used Rotini)
  • Almonds
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic 
  • Onion + Shallots
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt + Pepper 
  • Basil

Pasta:

  1. 7-9 mins. Cook and drain rotini according to box instructions. ( Trick: In order to tell if pasta is cooked, throw a noodle against a flat wall. If the noodle sticks, its done.)
  2. Toss in olive oil.

Pesto:

  1. Blend Spinach leaves, olive oil, black pepper, salt + basil.
  2. Add almonds, parmesan cheese + garlic. Blend until smooth.
  3. Saute onion and shallots until tender. 
  4. Combine pesto with onion + shallots mixture + pasta.

You. Me. Lunch. started as a saying between my best friend, Khaila, and I. It's been our way of saying 'see ya later' since we were seven years old. I guess you can say I'm an actual food baby.
