Tagliatelle with Peas and Taste5 Spinach-Broccoli Pesto

It ain't easy being green or getting kids to eat their green veggies, especially broccoli and spinach. You can sneak in the green with this tasty recipe. They won't know if you don't tell them! Make the Taste5 Pesto the day before and this becomes a 15-minute quick dinner. Boil water, cook pasta, drain, stir in peas and pesto, sprinkle of cheese - et voila!

We love different kinds of pesto because they are full of flavor and add quick and easy deliciousness to many easy dishes. Freeze in 1/4 cup portions and keep for up to 6 months.
