It never occured to me to add pesto sauce to plain old spaghetti sauce - the results are wonderful. Though you can't really taste the pesto, it really adds another layer flavor. I did change a few things. First, I browned and crumbled some sweet Italian sausage, then added some fresh mushrooms. Once that was all cooked, I add two cans of plain spaghetti sauce and almost a whole container of pesto. Once the pasta was cooked, I threw it all in a casserole, topped with cheese and baked for 20 minutes or so. My husband doesn't usually comment on pasta dishes - this one he did, repeatedly!
This recipe is incredibly easy and healthy. I used Prego sauce and pesto with basil. Yum-o! All my kids (ages 17 14 and 5) ate seconds. We served it with frozen cheesy garlic bread and had dinner on the table in 30 minutes!
Not much of a recipe as far as recipes go! But definitely a step up from opening a jar of spaghetti sauce. Tasty with the addition of the pesto quick and easy. Add a salad and garlic toast and voila dinner.
Simple easy fast meal for a quick dinner. Nothing amazing but good and basic. The pesto added a nice flavor but wasn't overpowering. I used whole wheat penne in place of regular ziti (couldn't find whole wheat ziti) as well as a mushroom & pepper tomato sauce to add a few more nutrients. Adding sliced veggies to the sauce would also make this dish more hearty.
