Farfalle with Spinach & Walnut Pesto
Pasta & Side Dishes
This is an easy, delicious pasta dish that pairs perfectly with our Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook pasta according to directions on box. While the pasta is cooking, combine spinach, walnuts, grated Parmesan, garlic, lemon juice, pepper flake, olive oil and water in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Drain pasta from water, reserving ½ cup of pasta water. Return pasta to pot, adding in pesto and cherry tomatoes. Cook on low heat until cherry tomatoes become tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, garnish with additional Parmesan.
