Here’s a great recipe I came up with the other day. Now I’m typically not a massive pesto lover, but I’ve really been craving pasta salad lately and thought this could be a great idea. Turns out I was on to something.. The pesto serves as a great base to compliment the canvas of pasta and nuttiness of the cheese. On top of everything else, the candied pecans will give your pasta an awesome extra crunch and flavor.
