When it come to a consistency of mayonnaise that means now you have to stop adding oil. Mix a little bit of cheese. Make a smooth paste. Cook the penne adding salt and olive oil. Now drain the excess water. Pour the pasta in a serving bowl. Cover evenly with pesto sauce and grated cheese. Mix well. Garnish with basil leaves. Your delicious penne with pesto sauce is ready.
