Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is so simple and easy!!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 Box of pasta (rotini)

Cook Pasta

Reserve pasta water

Combine pesto, butter and heavy cream over medium heat

Add in salt, pepper & parmesan cheese

Bake @ 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. (I turned on the broiler at the end so the cheese would brown for a minute or two)
