Spaghetti in Pesto Sauce

>>  Tuesday, November 17, 2015

We are starting the third week of BM#58 with pastas as the main ingredient. I will be cooking some pastas that are kid approved for my Kids Delight Event, guest hosted this month by Srividhya. 

While I thought it will be a breeze making some pastas, it turned out to be the toughest, with me being on a hiatus from blog cooking. I still do not know if I will be able to make it. However the first in the series is something I cooked up some months ago, infact for the Sep Mega BM, for the Condiments, where I made the Italian Pesto.

Finding the Italian Basil in Madras is a tough thing. The moment I landed with some, I was overjoyed and made this sauce much before sep. I also prepared some Spaghetti and absolutely loved it. I never realized I would actually love greens in a pasta dish.

I also realized that getting Parsley is much easier than Basil, so I might just stick to it. 

Apart from all this need to cook some pasta for the blog, regular life has come to a stand still, with heavy rains in the city for the past week. The school closed for Deepawali for the kids and its yet to reopen. Being at home for more than a week now, they are both happy and bored. Other than a day's off, I have been working. All in all, I haven't found time to cook anything. 

While I was thinking I will be so prepared, real life throws in so many unexpected stuffs. Nothing is ready and I am hoping some miracle will happen to get all of those done.

Meanwhile you do enjoy this pasta..

Pasta is a favorite with kids and adults. It's one of the few things I don't have to force my daughter to eat and she gobbles it up readily. Love your version.

The dish looks very attractive.Long time time back i tried pesto sauce and my grandson was not happy with that. I'll try your version of it.
