Pasta with Pesto Sauce

On a lazy or a busy day we want a quick-fix meal. Pasta with Pesto Sauce is the solution. If you have pesto sauce handy then it’s just the matter of 10 mins and woohoo!!! Your meal is ready. I had previously shared the recipe for Pesto Sauce, you can prepare it in advance and it’ll remain good for at least a week under refrigeration. I did not add cheese to it, if you prefer you can go for it.
