Cilantro Pesto over Soba Noodles

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kate H.

Recipe calls for using this sauce/marinate on soba noodles, but you can use it on all types of noodles. You can also marinate the shrimp in a bit of this sauce for 10 minutes and quickly sauté the shrimp, or grill on skewers.

I love the combination of these flavors, I did, however, find the sauce overwhelming. Next time I will do as you suggested and use the sauce as a marinade for shrimp, fish, or chicken then toss it with the soba noodles. My 18month old really liked these noodles he ate a small bowl. A couple minor things, you might want to edit the directions, they suggest that you put the noodles in the blender and you might want to add the 1/3 of a cup of olive oil to the list of ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

  1. Put all those ingredients in a blender and slowly drizzle in 1/3 cup of olive oil and blend! Recipe easily doubles and can be refrigerated for a day or so.
  2. Note: The pesto will be very thin in consistency.
