Orecchiette Pesto Pasta
AFFORDABLE WHOLEFOODS – RECIPE OF THE WEEK
“This is one of my favourite pastas to cook with. It’s the tri-coloured organic durum wheat orecchiette from L’Abruzzese Artisan Pasta with spinach and tomato powder giving it the subtle colouring it has. It goes really well in casseroles as well, but I love to make it with just a simple pine nut pesto and garnish with a few herbs and extra toasted pine nuts for crunch.” Denise Evans, Owner – Affordable Wholefoods
