Easy Cheesy Rigatoni pasta in Basil Pesto Sauce


The Pasta recipes with sauce can make quickly and very easy to cook for any time. Mostly, i don't use sauces for my Pasta recipes cook only with veggies n egg it gives fresh flavour and good taste. My Hubby like the Basil Pesto sauce flavour, sometimes i use this sauce with linguine this time used for Rigatoni  and added little bit of creamy white sauce came out very good and easy to cook for quick dinner sure kids will love it. We enjoyed this Basil Pesto pasta with a bowl of soup with Ciabatta rolls tasted very good for our dinner.

Ingredients:

1.Uncooked Rigatoni - half package
2.Basil Pesto sauce - 2 tbsp
3.Butter or Margerine - 1tbsp
4.Cake flour or Maida - 1 tbsp
5.Parmesan Cheese Shavings - 3 tbsp
6.Milk - 1/2 cup

  9. Not an issue at all Sathya. I can understand about weekends, thats the case with me too. Even, I'm always occupied on weekends with parties, frenz come over, eating out, shoppin, etc... yes, even I do instant rava idli that way, but, with urad dal is traditional one ( passed from generations in my family). By the way, it would be great if u can put in details of how u make ur basil pesto sauce, so that i can see variations and know how different it would be from wat I prepare :). I love pesto sauces too :)

  38. I'm doin good Sathya. How have u been? Ok, if u don't use pesto often, then it makes sense in buyin a sauce. I prepare and cook it with pasta the same day, if anythin is remamining, will keep it in the fridge and use it , within a day or 2. Was just curious to know, how differently u would prepare from that of mine. So, that i can try ur version too sometime. Coz, I love to experiment and cook with variations like sometimes, i use, mint, or parsley, or basil, or even tried it with coriander...

  40. Good recipes...Do you ever cook for yourself or just for the joy of cooking or is it all centered around your husbands tastebuds?

    Hope this answers your question.
