Pesto pasta is easy to make and full of flavor. It tastes good hot or cold!
- (16 ounce) package pasta : 1 pack
- olive oil : 2 Tbsp
- chopped onion : 0.5 cup
- pesto : 2.5 Tbsp
- salt to taste : 0 piece
- ground black pepper to taste : 0 piece
- grated Parmesan cheese : 2 Tbsp
Stages of cooking
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in pasta and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer into a large bowl.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add onion; cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in pesto, salt, and pepper until warmed through.
Add pesto mixture to hot pasta; stir in grated cheese and toss well to coat.
