When life gives you yummy pesto, you put that ish on some pastaaaaaaaa.

I loved having this pasta with my homemade pesto. It’s so yummy! And you can make the pesto creamier if you want. Personally, I liked it like this. I’ve really liked adding water chestnuts to everything lately. They’re a perfect crunchy substitution and pretty allergy friendly. They don’t hold a ton of nutritional value, but this has a lot of nifty information about them.
