It’s important to eat healthily, but every once in a while everybody needs a little comfort food.
We’re talking about stick-to-your-ribs, rich, decadent just like your mom used to make. One those occasions, a big plate of pasta is the perfect answer to your cravings.
With lots of cream, cheese and potatoes, this pasta recipe is not diet-friendly. It will, however, keep your full and happy.
The key to this dish’s success is using a great pesto sauce. There’s a lot of ways to go about it. Some families have a recipe passed down for generations. Others think outside the box and use kale or arugula for a slightly healthier sauce. If you are new to pesto sauce, we found a very basic and very easy to make sauce you can try out.
Our great northern beans help give this recipe some extra protein since there’s no meat while providing extra flavor, heartiness and nutrition. Feel free to cook up a little chicken or shrimp to add to the party too.
Finally, we can’t forget the potatoes in this dish. The small red potatoes add a fantastic texture to the dish, with the slight pop of the skin and the fluffiness of the interior. Top it all off with Parmesan cheese, and we guarantee this dish will make you a convert to Northern Italian cooking.
