Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta


Whenever we think of pesto, the first thing that comes to our mind is the traditional basil pesto. But we can make pesto with other ingredients too and this sun-dried tomato pesto is one such versatile and flavorsome pesto that I made few days back. I reserved some of the pesto to make pasta and used the rest to spread over baguette and sandwiches.

Pasta is such a flexible dish that you can make vary it each time with different sauces and veggies. I tossed in some spinach also into the pasta to make little more healthier and colorful. It tastes even better the next day!
