Mint Pesto Pasta
This recipe made me think outside the box for pesto and I'll be creating my own creations with what's on hand from now on. Only problem is it looks like catfood but mixed in with the pasta and garnished with some fresh spinach or herbs or tomatos it's fine. I more or less used the same ingredients except I only had dried basil (looking forward to using fresh) and I tried the cream cheese suggestion. I didn't exactly follow proportions though - I just kept adding stuff until it tasted good so I probably added more garlic and it needed a lot of salt and pepper. It has to have a strong flavor so it goes far on the pasta. I think too much tomato might result in a bland flavor. Next time I'd add more mint. This would be good on brushetta, perhaps under a tomato slice to cover up the cat food like appearance.
