This recipe was really good and easy as you do not have to cook the sauce. I used Barilla Plus penne because I did not have whole grain spaghetti: the result was delicious. I love the fresheness that the orange zest brings to the nuts pesto. On my second portion I added a spoon of ricotta cheese and this made the pesto creamier!!

This nut pesto was just interesting enough that I had to try it and boy am I glad I did. I just love the refreshing flavors of this sauce! I make basil pesto all the time and it's a very strong sauce. This pesto is more delicate summer version. The orange is very mild in this, but adds a touch of sweetness to the nuts. I upped the garlic as always, but that's personal taste. If you're a salt lover like me, you'll want to toss some of that in too. Thank you, Barilla, for posting!!!
