my own pesto-tomato pasta!

I don't cook often... but sometimes will try something new. I made myself a yummy lunch yesterday... and am pretty proud that it came out tasting so good! (Often, that is not so much the case.)

It was an easy pasta dish... but even that, I don't often make the time to do...

It might not look very much like pesto... but there IS pesto inside... (I want to try making my own next time!) and then I also added some tomato paste (which I found in CoOp, shown below), some basil-tomato pasta sauce (which is why the red color took over), and then a dash of sugar, salt, pepper, oregano, diced garlic, fresh tomatoes, and some grated cheese on top. Mmmmmhmmmm... it was delicious. I made enough to have extra for Sunday or school lunches I figured - but ate it for dinner too!

Oh! and the pasta that I used is 25% vegetables! There were a few kinds and I want to try others... this one was made with zucchini and spinach.


  1. This looks delicious! I want to taste it!
