Weekend Cooking – Pesto Pasta

I know it’s not technically the weekend anymore, but I wanted to do this post anyway. Life has been super stressful recently with all the fires nearby and it’s been hard to do much writing. But I’m here now! Weekend Cooking is a weekly blog meme hosted by The Intrepid Reader.

This weekend I experimented with making pesto! I’ve tried a couple times before but never with macadamia nuts, and I do believe this was my best version yet.

I’ve been trying to get away from making just pasta noodles, but my partners aren’t the biggest fan of zoodles. So I’ve hit upon a balance of half and half that seems to make everyone happy.

The pesto turned out really good. I think my macadamia nuts were a little old, but in the end I was able to make a really good creamy pesto. I’m so happy with my new food processor. The pasta ended up having some onions, garlic and sausage as well.

What’s your favorite pasta recipe?
