This is an easy summer salad to make; quick enough to whip up for entertaining or to enjoy at home, like we did.
My friends were supposed to come over for a “mocktail” pregnant couples soiree; unfortunately we had to cancel because one of the girls wasn’t feeling well, but this was one of the things I prepared for the party.
It’s so easy and delicious, you’re going to love it.
Pesto is a staple for Northern Italian cuisine and a popular dish inside New York Italian-American households. Traditionally, it’s a great meal for summer time because the sauce doesn’t require cooking – but we eatit year round. Besides, after a long day of work, sometimes I just don’t feel like cooking much.
(For this recipe I used rotelle (meaning “little wheels” in Italian) shaped macaroni because I love the pesto chunks getting stuck inside the “wheel” of the pasta. )
