Cook ZENB Pasta according to package instructions.2.
While the pasta cooks, prepare the pesto. Add all remaining ingredients except olive oil to a food processor.3.
Blend for 20-30 seconds until ingredients are well combined and chopped into very small pieces.4.
Add the olive oil to the food processor, then pulse a few times to combine it with everything else. Be careful not to blend too much, because you want the pesto to retain some texture.5.
Drain your pasta. Add it to a mixing bowl along with the pesto.6.
Mix the pasta well so all the noodles are coated in pesto. Serve right away.
Pesto pasta tastes good hot or cold! This recipe keeps well in the fridge for 3-5 days.
