Expert Tips

Pesto is made from olive oil, fresh basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Look for commercial brands of pesto in the Italian section of the supermarket or next to the refrigerated pastas and fresh pasta sauces.

For a heartier dish, top the pasta with sliced, grilled chicken breasts.
