Spaghetti with Basil Pesto Sauce is a simple and delicious pasta dish you can easily whip up while cooking the pasta!  Fresh Basil with garlic, some walnuts and grated parmigiana cheese pureed with extra virgin olive oil and added to spaghetti makes a hit in our home every time!  And the best part is making this under 10 minutes!

A few days ago we posted the recipe for our Fresh Basil Pesto Sauce.  It’s a satisfying dish with spaghetti and one that we make often for our families. You can try any kind of pasta with this sauce and guarantee its delicious every time!

For a healthier twist, try using multi-grain spaghetti!  Buon Appetito!
