Pasta with Pesto Cream Sauce

Thank you Pioneer Woman for another lovely recipe.  I tweaked it a bit, but all in all it's the same thing, and it was very very tasty.  I'd make extra sauce next time because I like my pasta super saucy.  

You Need:
1 small jar store bought pesto
1 pint light cream
2 tbsp light butter
1/3 c grated parmesan
14.5 oz box thin spaghetti
2 tomatoes, diced & deseeded

 Start your pasta water, and once that comes to a boil add your box of pasta.  While that cooks, pour your cream and butter into a medium saucepan over med-high heat.  Once that butter melts add in your cheese and pesto.  Combine all ingredients and let the cheese melt and the ingredients get happy.  Drain your pasta and add it to your sauce, toss until coated.  Add in your tomatoes and toss lightly.  Mangia!


  1. I love this type of pasta. Eat it allll the time! Probably not healthy... I use cheese tortellini with it. It's amazing

    1. it's isn't THAT healthy, but if you can substitute heavy cream for something lighter it isn't as bad. :)

  2. If only I would enjoy pasta.. :(

    1. why don't you enjoy pasta?!?!?! that's not good!

    Couples only fool themselves if they think guests only care about the

  6. This is more important than ever in a world where there are dozens of
    different audio formats. Regular workshops ensure that the staff at PVM Radio
    subdivision is not only up to date with the latest technological innovations, but also ensures that the customers from diverse backgrounds are offered the best possible services to suit their tastes.
    But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being
    speech orientated, they're more like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.

    range when a fantastic song comes on over the vehicle radio.
    Hardware mechanisms used in the manufacturing of a Wi - Fi internet radio system is less
    complicated and the point of ergonomics is kept in mind by
    the manufactures. What s more is that 2G phones can come in
    a tinier and slimmer package, even its batteries.

  9. Once you have the centers prepared, there are a number
    of ways to decorate the outside. The icing smoother, also known as scrapper looks like the oddly shaped useless metal piece
    or plastic, but makes crisper and cleaner icing coat of 90-degree angles.
    Typically overlooked as practically nothing far more
    than just dessert belittled as a symbol that provides nothing more than a location to stick the
    candles, the birthday cake has lengthy been relegated to 2nd tier status in the realm of get together arranging.

    what death means. Choosing to focus on sound as a restriction increases a poet's powers of observation in melodic structure and the inherit oral aspects of a poem. Norton is publishing all eight of her poetry books in one volume as The Collected Poems of Ai.
