Delicious Linguine Pesto Recipe

My husband and I are empty nesters now and I am always looking for delicious recipes that make just 2 servings for us to enjoy. This Linguine Pesto Recipe is really easy to prepare and if you have a larger sized family, you can certainly double and even triple the ingredients.

Linguine Pesto Recipe

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 sm. garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked linguine
1/2 tsp. to 3/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil and minced garlic. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped basil. In a large mixing bowl combine the cooked linguine with the basil mixture, tossing to just coat all of the ingredients. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese on top. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time.
