About this Recipe

By: Caitlin Greene

I have been running around all day...vet appointment with my little girl, Trader Joe’s run (check my stories), cleaned out my fridge, and used up all the leftover herbs I had to make this pesto before they went bad! It’s my favorite way to save on waste, and I haven’t shared this before. Basically you just use whatever herbs you have on hand (see below for this one). This lunch came together in no time, all I did was boil the pasta and make the pesto (which took 5 minutes).
