Everyday Food Light features a recipe for Whole Wheat Pasta with Lighter Pesto. I adore pesto while Nuno is pretty lukewarm to eating it. This recipe is probably not the best pesto recipe to sway anyone on the fence about the flavour. It was pretty pungent with the abundance of herbs. To my fault, I also threw in some mint that needed to be used up, and I feel like that might have just enhanced the herbal flavour.
Surprisingly, everyone enjoyed it. I actually didn’t really have high hopes for Owen, but he seemed to like it (maybe it was the bright colour). But after trying this recipe I’d probably just stick to a more traditional ratio for pesto and eat less than to overindulge in this figure-friendly version.
