We all love a great, home made pesto sauce (we've even already given you our recipe), but what about ading a creamy twist on this popular favorite?  With a little cream, pesto sauce can take on a whole new flavor, perfect for when you want to switch it up!  This recipe makes enough for two servings of pasta.

What you'll need:
  • 1/2 lb. pasta of your choice
  • 2 tbsp. prepared pesto (you can use our recipe HERE)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp. salted butter
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
Step 1: Set a large pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil while preparing your other ingredients for the sauce.  In a large skillet over low heat, add your 3 tbsp. of butter, and grate garlic over it.  Stir until garlic begins to brown.  

Step 2: Add in the heavy cream and milk and stir for 1 minute.  Add your prepared pesto and continue to stir.  Add parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese melts.

Step 3: As soon as pasta is ready, grab it with tongs and bring it directly into your large skillt to mix with the sauce.
