PENNE WITH PESTO SAUCE:


A friend of mine invited me for lunch so I want to cook something fresh delicious yet light for breakfast. I open my refrigerator; saw some fresh basil leaves and this fresh green leaves motivate me to prepare delicious penne with pesto sauce. I hope you will like this simple yet yummy recipe.

INGREDIENTS:



Penne             2 cups
Fresh basil       1 cup chopped
Walnut            ½ cup
Garlic            5 to 6 cloves
Parmesan cheese   ½ cup grated
Olive oil        1/2 cup
Salt and pepper  according to taste
PROCEDURE:
First prepare the pesto sauce. Take basil, walnut, garlic, salt and pepper in your food processor.. Slowly add the olive oil while the machine is running. 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. This is a healthy breakfast because we use walnut, rich in omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid(ALA) which is good for heart. For the weight watcher you can skip cheese or use a little bit of it and enjoy this penne with pesto sauce.

ENJOY A LOVELY WEEKEND!

BE HAPPY AND STAY HEALTHY.
