Penne Pasta with Pistachio Pesto Cream Sauce

For a delightful, different spin on traditional pesto sauce with pine nuts, try this awesome penne pasta recipe with pistachio pesto cream sauce. It's rich and decadent, yet more economical than the traditional version...and we think it tastes even better!

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 15 min

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pistachio nuts, shells removed
  • 1 1/2 cups cream
  • 1/2 pound penne pasta, cooked
Instructions
  1. Place the basil, parsley, garlic, oil, and pistachio nuts in a food processor bowl. Pulse until a coarse paste forms. Set aside.
     
  2. Heat the cream in a large skillet. Boil until the cream begins to thicken.
     
  3. Whisk in the pesto.
     
  4. Toss in the cooked pasta.
     
  5. Check the seasonings. Serve warm. 
Notes

Serve this as a side dish or add shrimp to create an entrée.  Serves 2-4.
