RECIPE: Pesto Pasta with Cheese Curds

Pesto Pasta with Cheese Curds

When I need a quick recipe but I don’t want to run to the store, I often lean towards pasta! I always have noodles at home, and I always have something I can throw with it to make it delicious. This is one of those recipes!
  • 2T Pesto
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Diced Red Onion
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cheese Curds
  • Egg Noodles 
  • Salt a pot of water and bring to a boil – once boiling add your noodles and cook per the package.
  • In another pan add the olive oil, garlic, and red onions and lightly cook.
  • Optional: Chop the cheese curds into smaller pieces.
  • Drain the pasta and save back 1/3 cup of the pasta water.
  • Add to the onions and garlic your Pesto, Red Pepper Flakes, and Pasta Water and stir.
  • Combine the noodles and cheese curds with the mixture and stir until evenly mixed and coated. Top with more cheese curds.
  • Enjoy!
