Recipe - Faux Pesto Pasta

Day 289

This is one of the easiest recipes ever. It's pesto in half the time and half the mess. The proportions can be adjusted to your taste. This makes 2 hearty portions or 4 side dish portions.

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup olive oil
fresh basil and parsley, as much as you like, chopped finely or julienned
1/2 pound pasta of your choice. I like rotini and penne
salt and pepper to taste

Combine cheese, nuts, oil, and herbs. Let sit 30 minutes to 1 hour. Cook pasta according to package. Toss with cheese mixture and add salt and pepper. Delicious and easy.
