Pesto sauce is incredibly easy to make at home and doesn’t involve a lot of ingredients. The secret to making this recipe guilt free is the pasta. Pappardelle’s pasta luce is low in calories, carbs and high in fiber. The pasta is a little pricey (especially the shipping), but well worth it. You won’t find this product in stores, so stock up on this stuff when they have rare, special sales. Let’s dig in!

Step 1
Mark as Complete

Heat your stove top heating surface to medium, add your pine nuts, and shuffle your pan for about 30 seconds. The pine nuts will toast quickly. Don't worry if you see black burn marks.

Step 2
Mark as Complete

Drop your toasted pine nuts and remaining ingredients into your blender. Blend well until smooth. You will have 1/2 cup of pesto sauce. Use only 1/4 cup per serving and store the rest in your refrigerator.

Step 3
Mark as Complete

Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil, then add your pasta. Cook for 10-14 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once complete, drain (do not rinse) and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Be sure to save 2 tablespoons of the water.

Step 4
Mark as Complete

Immediately add your 1/4 cup of pesto sauce and saved water while the pasta is still warm. Toss your pasta around to evenly coat.

Step 5
Mark as Complete

Plate your pasta, serve, and enjoy.

Storing Tip

Your remaining pesto sauce can be stored in the refrigerator. Never heat your pesto sauce in the microwave. It will turn clumpy and you will not be able to use it. The key is to always add your pesto sauce after your pasta has finished cooking while still hot.
