Pesto and pasta are the perfect combinations. Pesto originated in Genoa during the 12th and 13th centuries. The original pesto recipe called for 7 simple ingredients: extra-virgin olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, pine nuts, salt, and pecorino cheese. The pesto adds a rich, salty flavor to the pasta and a nutty, bright, herbaceous flavor. Furthermore, since this pasta is made with rigatoni pasta, the pesto gets trapped in the ridges making sure there is a bit of pesto in every bite. Overall, you can't go wrong with this delicious pesto pasta.
