Gluten Free Mushroom Spinach Pesto Pasta

Gluten Free Mushroom Spinach Pesto Pasta

Am I the only one that goes on total food kicks on a regular basis?  For example, I’ve been putting mushrooms in everything lately, basically my prerequisite for making a dish is that I can add mushrooms to it!

Pizza, pasta, omelets, skewers, you name it, I’ve been adding mushrooms to it for the last few weeks!

Gluten Free Pesto Pasta

After whipping up my homemade Spinach Pesto a couple of weeks ago, I decided to create a pasta dish similar to my popular Gluten Free Kale Pesto Spaghetti with Goat Cheese.

Instead of goat cheese, I used parmesan, instead of sun dried tomatoes, I used mushrooms and instead of kale pesto, I used my fresh spinach pesto.

The result was a super flavorful dish that I ate for lunch… then dinner… then lunch the next day. Let’s just say if I had enough leftovers to eat it for the entire week, I would have!
