Pasta with Pesto


Truth be told I love linguine. I like that it’s long, flat, and thinner than fettuccine. Linguine is basically my favorite pasta “shape.”

I also have an affinity for pesto. Honestly, I don’t remember the first time I tried pesto. My mom used to buy it in tiny jars when I was little. I’m grateful for stores like Sam’s Club® that sell economical large bottles of pesto so I don’t have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy it once!

I decided to go an extra step today and wilt some spinach to go with it. So here’s my recipe for easy pasta with pesto with wilted spinach! This recipe is for one person, but it would be easy to adapt for more servings.

Since this is a recipe for just one, check out Frank Sinatra singing “All Alone.”
