Basil Pesto Recipe - Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe with step wise pictures.
Super flavourful pesto pasta which has vibrant pesto tossed into it. This makes a great lunch box recipe.
I wanted to try this for quite a long time, but i put it aside in my bucketlist because i couldn't get fresh basil leaves in my place. Yesterday when we went shopping i saw few veggies on the rack, immediately i picked out quite a few of them. I saw this basil leaves at ridiculously cheap price, it was just 10 Rs. I picked 4 bunches of it.
Immediately i tried basil chicken and this one.

Stir Fry Spaghetti
