Great green pasta salad!
Made without spinach or nuts.. Was a very nice pasta salad! Will add nuts next time.
Very good! Made with mini shells and elbows. Left out the additional olive oil and most of the mayo. Still delicious! Creamy and yummy. Swapped olive oil 'mayo' for the regular. Hubby said he wants it again, so that means it is goooood.
This was great but a lot of the fattening ingredients were totally unnecessary (and I'm not a health nut!). Made my own vegan pesto which, once combined with the spinach, was incredibly creamy and filling with a beautiful green color-- added some Veganaise which did nothing good nor bad to the pesto- skip the mayo, folks. Trust the pesto! Also didn't understand why I added olive oil to the noodles. Rinse the noodles and they won't stick while cooling. This dish was incredibly easy to veganize- always a plus! Added some baby tomatoes from my garden for color.
wife loved it, used all fusilli, didnt have nuts thansk
This was sooo good! I just used fusilli pasta and it was fine. I could eat this all day!
My, oh my, this is so good. I made this for dinner last night for my husband and a friend. We all loved it! I used Trader Joe's 7 ounce container of Genova Pesto (in their refrigerator case) and it was exactly 3/4 cup, perfect for making just half of the recipe, which was plenty for three of us. I tossed the pasta with a tablespoon of butter and a drizzle of olive oil, to keep it from sticking together while cooling to room temperature, instead of all olive oil. My husband has already been asking when I will be making this again.
My partner and I had this as a main dish last night, with a salad on the side. We each had two helpings it was good! I had some homemade pesto in the freezer, so this was a breeze to pull together for dinner. I did cut the recipe in half and it still made more than enough with leftovers for this weekend. I really liked combination of mayo (I used lite) with the pesto and lemon juice. The spinach and peas were a nice, healthy addition to this meatless dish. As other reviewers have suggested, don't forget to season well with salt and pepper. Last, we didn't feel the need for the additional 1/4 cup of olive oil since the pesto had plenty. Really delicious dish, thank you for sharing!
Such a refreshing meal for a beautiful spring evening! I used a tube pasta, made my own spinach pesto (so I left out the extra spinach) and left out the mayo and pine nuts. Very quick, fresh, simple and pretty healthy if you go light on the olive oil. Will use often...thanks for posting!
