Cilantro Pesto Pasta

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by KelBel

This is from 30 minute meals by Rachael Ray. It is unusual because it uses ginger and macadamia nuts.

Pretty good. As soon as I dumped the pasta in the collendar, I realized that I forgot to withhold some of the water. So I quickly dumped the pasta back in the saucepan and added the pesto sauce. I didn't need to add any water since I only used half as much spaghetti as the recipe called for. Seemed to have the right consistancy. I sprinkled Parmesan cheese on the top. I did feel that the lime juice was a little strong. Next time I'll only use half a lime.
