How to Make Pesto Pasta in Just 15 Minutes

Ingredients 1 package (16 oz.) spaghetti 1 cup homemade pesto

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese Crushed red pepper flakes, optional

Cook the spaghetti according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water.

In a large bowl, whisk the pesto and 1/3 cup pasta water. Add the cooked spaghetti, and toss to coat.

Add more pasta water to reach your desired consistency. If you want a more concentrated sauce for the noodles, stick with less water.

Sprinkle with Parmesan, and, if desired, red pepper flakes for a little kick.
