Pesto Cream Sauce
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a great sauce for pasta. We like cappelini, penne, or fettucini. Add shrimp or crawfish for a complete meal with a crisp green salad and some hot, buttered French bread. I make my own pesto and freeze in ice cube trays. This recipe calls for 2 cubes. Enjoy!
