The Pesto Pasta Recipe That Had Everyone Drooling

Yes, it’s true. This pasta literally had everyone drooling and really, wanting more. Made by Mommy Z for iftaar in the month of Ramzan one day, I happen to take it with me to the pray area and just like that offer people. Turns out, it was so delicious that firstly they couldn’t stop eating and secondly they couldn’t stop asking for the recipe. So I thought of taking down the recipe before mommy dearest forgets it – Which is very likely to happen. Also, fresh pesto is one of my personal favourites!
