Warm pasta tossed with fresh basil and spinach in a very light cream sauce is an example of seasonal eating at it’s best. Inspired by the basil that is flourishing in our garden, this was a fun twist on pesto pasta and it still contained a fabulous load of flavor from the fresh basil.
While I absolutely loved this pasta, my kids were less than impressed. Both of my older boys would have been happier without the greens and my youngest happily removed all green items from his plate before he ate the rest of his pasta. I’m calling this recipe a keeper though, because I have every intention of making this again, just for myself!
