Easy Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe


1 cup basil pesto
2 cups macaroni or pasta of your choice
1/2 cup bacon bits

mix... soooo easy right?

for the basil pesto recipe:

1 cup fresh basil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
dash of ground black pepper

you can also use pine nuts, but I personally don't like the taste of it so I'll pass.

pulse the mixture in a food processor until it looks like pesto!

  1. mmmm I LOVE pesto!! what a great healthy yummy invention hehehe

    I sometimes use walnuts instead of pine nuts because pine nuts are so darn expensive - but I'll have to try it like this, with no nuts sometime... that would just make it that much easier to make on the fly
