Veggie Pesto Pasta

Adding pesto to any dish instantly accelerates it.  This is a great pasta dish for the whole family that is loaded with healthy vegetables and so flavorful you won’t get any push back on taking in all those veggies!

What you need to make this Veggie Pesto Pasta

  • Squash
  • Tomatoes- I used grape tomatoes cut into halves
  • Red onion- any onion will do; I liked the added color variation
  • Garlic- super health ingredient!  Great for gut health and immune systems
  • Green bell pepper
  • Spaghetti- or any other pasta noodle
  • Pesto- I used 3 cubes of homemade fresh pesto that I froze. Or you can buy a premade sauce.  I like Good & Gather’s from Target, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives and Delallo’s Simply Pesto.  Both brands use only olive oil and contain less added salt.  *Be aware that pesto is made with a variety of nuts such as pine nuts, walnuts and cashews. Be sure to read the label if you have any nut allergies in your family.
