Perlini Pasta With Pesto
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a wonderful, light pasta that can be purchased at specialty stores like Trader Joes's, Whole Foods or Bristol Farms. They look like little purses or pockets. I love working with this pasta, because the nooks in the top of the pasta, hold the pesto sauce very nicely. This is my original recipe! Enjoy! The pasta not only tastes good, it is a conversation piece!
