Parsley pesto is an easy way to add personality to your pasta dinner. You'll love the addition of green beans, tomatoes, and feta too.
My family never wants anything but tomato sauce with pasta, but sometimes I need a break. There are plenty of ways to make veggie pasta, so why not try something different? At least that’s what I try to tell them. Why not this Kale Pesto Recipe, I ask? But, baby steps. This pasta, made with parsley pesto, green beans and tomatoes is just as flavorful as anything made with marinara.
My herb garden this year had an abundance of parsley. As I was searching for inspiration to use it, I came across several parsley pesto recipes. A pesto with some veggies thrown in sounded good to me!
I love the crunchy texture of green beans and happen to have a bunch, so I used them as my main vegetable. Of course, I had to include some tomatoes too since there was no tomato sauce.
This dish comes together quickly and requires few ingredients. I liked it served warm but I think I enjoyed eating the leftovers cold the next day even better. So there’s a bonus for you. Make a quick, warm, flavorful dinner and have a ready-to-go lunch the next day!
