Dinnertime. The worst time of day for me. Even though I love my work, after a day of shooting and testing recipes for the blog or clients, I kind of just want to sit back and relax with a glass of wine or two. But alas, my repertoire also includes being a mom, housewife, cleaner, dishwasher, cook, teacher…I can really go on all day here…
Guys, I’m all for quick dinners. I am also all for a bowl of pasta. And pesto. And parmesan. These bowls of goodness combines some of my favorite ingredients.
So first off, you have macaroni. Don’t sell this humble ingredient short. It has been a saving grace in our house more than once a month – just look at this Mac and Cheese I made a while ago.
Then, pesto. You simply cannot have a meal that’s bad when pesto is involved. You can use any pesto for this recipe, but I chose to use all the leftover herbs I had in the fridge after shooting – and it came out great.
I decided to make a quick pasta sauce with some red peppers and fresh tomatoes – kick it up a notch by adding some chili to the mix. Or simply buy a jar of pasta sauce – I get you, no judgement here.
Have a great one!
