Cheesy Basil Pesto Pasta

Deliciously flavorful basil pesto, ricotta cheese & cream cheese are combined to make a creamy, cheesy sauce. The sauce is tossed with pasta shells in this easy 20 minute pesto pasta recipe!

To say that I’m a big fan of pesto would be the understatement of the century!

I make half a dozen different types of homemade pesto and use them in tons of different recipes! Basil Pesto is delicious on Baked Salmon. And Sun Dried Tomato Pesto is perfect in this One Pot Vegetarian Tortellini dish!

Pesto can be used on everything from sandwiches to pizza to grilled chicken. But its most popular use is tossed with pasta!

Instead of simply tossing pasta with pesto, in this recipe I made a creamy, cheesy pesto sauce. It’s rich, creamy and decadent! It can be served as a side dish with an entree like Italian Meatloaf or Bruschetta Chicken Parmesan.

It can also be served as a main dish. If you want a more complete meal, add a protein like grilled chicken or steak to this delicious Pesto Pasta!

When it comes to creating new recipes for the blog, I love putting creative new twists on classic blog favorites.

The most popular recipe on the blog is Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne. I created this recipe in my first 6 months of blogging and it’s been a hit every year since! It’s simple, cheesy, pasta deliciousness. What’s not to love?

If you love BBQ Chicken Pizza (which, come on, who doesn’t?!) you’re going to love this BBQ Chicken Mac and Cheese!

Lemon butter garlic shrimp scampi is easy to make in only 15 minutes! Serve this delicious recipe over pasta, or with zoodles for a healthy, keto meal!

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to make easy weeknight dinners. It cooks up so quickly. It’s easy to make a recipe in 29 minutes or less!

Buffalo Shrimp Tacos are made in just 15 minutes and a favorite on Taco Tuesday. Chimichurri Shrimp Skewers are a deliciously easy recipe to toss on the grill and only take 29 minutes to make!

One of my favorite shrimp recipes is Chili Lime Garlic Grilled Shrimp. It’s delicious served over rice or in tacos and made in just 26 minutes!

When it comes to Italian style shrimp, classic shrimp scampi is where it’s at! There really is nothing better than warm garlic butter sauce poured over succulent shrimp with a fresh zest of lemon!

Shrimp scampi is traditionally served over a plate of cooked spaghetti or bucatini pasta. (My personal favorite!) But you can also mix things up and serve it over zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash for a low carb meal.

No matter how you serve it, you’re going to fall in love with the lemony, buttery goodness of this dish!

If you’ve ever thought, ” I really love pasta and I really love tacos. I just can’t decide which one I love more!” Well, you don’t have to choose between the two anymore!

That’s right, I took the delicious flavors of tacos and incorporated them into this pasta bake recipe. It’s not only totally scrumptious, it’s totally easy too and perfect for weeknight meals!

The Creamy Avocado Sauce makes this pasta recipe unique and adds so much flavor to the dish! I’ve been using this avocado sauce in recipes for years. It first appeared on the blog in this recipe for Mexican Stuffed Shells.

These recipes are very similar, but in this Taco Pasta recipe I decided to simplify things. Instead of stuffing the ingredients into individual pasta shells, I simply tossed all of the ingredients together.

I’ve also used this avocado sauce to make the most delicious Chicken Enchiladas and Creamy Avocado & Corn Vegetarian Enchiladas.

The combination of flavors in this Baked Taco Recipe are fantastic! From the light and creamy avocado sauce, to the taco seasoned ground beef. I could eat this dish for every meal for a week.. and I have!

I promise, you want to make this recipe for dinner tonight!

Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan

Baked gluten free chicken parmesan is an easy recipe, made in just 29 minutes! Serve it with spaghetti squash for a healthy, low carb option, or with gluten free pasta.

Chicken parmesan has always been one of my favorite Italian dishes. And that’s saying a lot, because I love Italian food!  It’s cheesy, saucy and easy to make!

Creating gluten free chicken parmesan is as easy as swapping out traditional breadcrumbs for gluten free breadcrumbs. And serving the dish with gluten free pasta, spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

This isn’t the first Italian recipe I’ve made gluten free. These Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls are a wonderfully healthy, gluten free Italian recipe. And this Gluten Free Pasta Fagioli Soup is a gluten-free spin on the popular Olive Garden recipe. It’s easy to make in an Instant Pot or slow cooker!

My family loves this Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan recipe, and I love to make it! It’s made in only 29 minutes, it’s so easy & the result is totally delicious!

I love pesto! All different kinds of pesto, sun dried tomato pesto, basil pesto and kale pesto!

I love tossing pesto with tortellini, stuffing it in chicken and adding it to potato salad.

The best part about pesto is how you can make an easy, flavorful meal with it in less than 30 minutes. I combined kale pesto with pasta, sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese to make this easy pesto spaghetti recipe in just 15 minutes!

I’ve made this recipe with both traditional spaghetti and corn spaghetti, to make the recipe gluten free. Both versions work great!

Pesto tortellini with sun dried tomatoes and fresh basil in bowl with spoon

Let me tell you about my love of one pot meals. It’s a great love, a love that can only come from the fact that I absolutely hate doing dishes! One pot meals allow me to wash just one dish at the end of preparing the meal. Yes, please!

I love one pot rice dishes, like this Taco Chicken and Rice and this Kimchi Fried Rice.

I also love one pot potato recipes, like this One Pot German Meatballs and Potatoes and this One Pot Meatloaf Hash.

Now when it comes to finding the perfect vegetarian one pot meal, this Vegetarian Tortellini recipe is where it’s at! Creamy cheeses, combined with sun dried tomato pesto make an amazing sauce to toss with the cheesy tortellini and fresh veggies.

I’ve used this cheese tortellini over the years to make Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Tortellini. I’ve also used it to make One Pot Vegetarian Pesto Tortellini. Both are easy meals made in 29 minutes or less!

Today I’m incorporating the delicious tortellini into a new scrumptious soup recipe that’s made in just 15 minutes! That’s right creamy, cheesy tomato basil tortellini soup is made from start to finish in under 30 minutes.

When it comes to fall, I want to incorporate pumpkin into basically as many dishes as possible. Well that and buffalo sauce, but not together, I’m not that crazy!

Since I’m not a big sweets person I like to incorporate pumpkin into savory recipes like Pumpkin Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie, Pumpkin Pulled Pork, Pumpkin Chili & Pumpkin Enchiladas!

Inspired by the popularity of my Heart Shaped Cranberry Pomegranate Mini Pies for Valentine’s Day, I set out to make a “Shamrock Shaped” recipe for St Patrick’s Day.

It was only when I was elbow deep is green pasta dough that I realized my “101 Cookie Cutters Box” did not contain a shamrock!  Say what?

There were 8 different sized hearts for Valentine’s Day, but not one measly little shamrock for us Irish folk?!

I was appalled, but already too deep into the recipe for a trip to the craft store to find a shamrock shaped cookie cutter, so I decided circular green raviolis would just have to do!

Luckily they came out very green, so to me they still screamed St Patty’s Day fun!

Ravioli Pasta Dough Ingredients

Three Cheese Italian Herb Filling Ingredients

  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp fresh italian parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Prepare the pasta by adding the flour to a large mixing bowl, then making a well in the middle and adding the eggs.

Combine well, then add the water and pesto until a solid ball forms that is not dry, yet not sticky.  If dry, add additional water.  If sticky, add additional flour.

While the basil pesto adds some green color to the dough, you can also add a couple dashes of green food coloring to add more “green” to the pasta!

Next, roll the pasta dough into thin sheets either by hand or with a pasta roller.

Kale Artichoke Pasta

Spinach artichoke dip, delicious yes, make it into lunch, yes please!

I used the spinach artichoke dip recipe I served at my Pumpkin Carving Party last October with some alterations, including substituting kale for spinach and a creamy, hearty pasta dish was born!

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (divided)
  • 4 oz kale
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 14 oz can artichoke hearts
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan and romano cheese

Get your burners going by boiling water for the pasta on one burner. On another burner add the kale, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1/4 cup water in a large skillet with lid.  On the third burner start making the sauce by adding the cream cheese to a medium saucepan to melt.

Next add the greek yogurt, salt and garlic to the melted cream cheese.

Add the additional 2 tbsp olive oil, white wine vinegar and lemon juice, then drain and chop the artichoke hearts.

Add the artichoke hearts to the pasta sauce.

Stir to combine then add the cooked kale.

Drain the pasta and place into a large bowl. Mix the sauce well then add-on top of the pasta.

Now toss and serve topped with the red pepper flakes and parmesan and romano cheeses!

Yummy!

Recipe Notes

Vegetarian Option: Omit the chicken.  The spicy, cheesy buffalo sauce is so good on its own, you could definitely do it without chicken! Also, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Gluten Free Option: Use gluten-free pasta to make this recipe gluten free. Make sure the blue cheese dressing and chicken broth used are gluten-free.
