We don’t often go to Noodles & Co. but when I have, I absolutely love their pesto cavatappi. I’ve made homemade pesto at home and it’s fairly simple to make, so I thought we would have a homemade version of this yummy dish. Here is the recipe I based mine off of, and I tweaked mine a bit to use what I had on hand.
Cavatappi Pasta- 1-2 cups uncooked (I use organic whole wheat pasta)
Heavy whipping Cream – 1 1/2 tbsp
Olive Oil – 1 tbsp
Parmesan Cheese – 1-2 tbsp Shredded
Pesto (used premade packet, just added water & oil)
Garlic – 2-3 cloves, minced
white wine (I only had Sherry cooking wine, and that worked too)
Cook pasta, while that’s going make pesto sauce. Saute mushrooms in wine in a small skillet. Once all three are separately done, mix all together w/ the pasta. Add the whipping cream, and reduce heat to low for 1-2 minutes. Top w/ grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
