Farfalle With Creamy Pesto

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by flower7

Not sure where this came from originally but I love it! I used low-fat cottage cheese and sour cream. The pesto sauce would also be great as a sauce for chicken. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did :-)

i thought i reviewed this ages ago, so sorry. this was a nice creamy dish. i served it with fresh grown cherry tomatoes, halved, and extra grated parmesan cheese.very quick and easy too. -- i forgot to add that i used home grown basil, which to me makes such a difference. —

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in boiling, salted water until al dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, combine remaining ingredients except Parmesan in a food processor and process for 30 seconds.
  3. (To release more flavor from basil leaves, place them in a small plastic bag and bruise with a meat mallet before adding to food processor).
  4. Drain pasta and toss with sauce in a serving bowl.
  5. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
