Basil pesto and vegetable pasta – quick snack recipes

Pasta is a favourite among all kids. I was just talking to my sis on the video chat and it was time for dinner for her and the other part of the world. Her son was demanding for some Mac and cheese and he did not want to have bread and vegetables. My kids are no exception too when it comes to pasta. I make it a lot due to constant demands from the kids.basil pesto vegetable pasta I try to use the whole wheat pasta whenever possible.This time I decided to use the basil pesto sauce about which I had mentioned in my last post.I had had this basil pesto pasta in an Italian restaurant few months ago and liked the taste. But my kids found the taste a bit weird and are yet to acquire a taste for basil pesto.But this is a going to be a regular thing at my place for several reasons. One is due to the ready availibility of the pesto sauce in our nearby supermarket. Other is that basil is a healthy ingredient and can be used in many recipes.
