You saw this coming right? How could I share the walnut pesto with you and not share with you what I used it for?
There is the pasta noodle I have just discovered and I am declaring it my new favorite pasta noodle. I have told you before about my love hate feelings for rotini. Well I am not sure I will ever buy it again now that I know I can use Gemelli.Gemelli Pasta with Walnut Pesto | #pesto #pasta #italian #dinner

This noodle is great to eat al dente and also cooked more than al dente. It does a wonderful job at absorbing the pesto when you add it to it. What is great is that I didn’t have to use to much pesto to cover a full box of pasta. I added 3 tablespoons and that is it. Of course if you want to add more you should go for it!
