Flaxseed Pesto Pasta

This dish is not only boasting tons of healthy Omega-3’s, but puts a unique spin on the classic pesto sauce with flavors of aromatic, garlicky basil, nutty flaxseeds, and fresh Parmesan.

Ingredients

1 package DaVinci Bowties
1/4 cup Flax Seeds
4 ounces Basil Leaves
2 Large Garlic Cloves
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 cup DaVinci Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil then season with salt and drop the DaVinci Bowties. Cook until al-dente, about 8 minutes.
2. While the pasta cooked, make the flax seed pesto. Add washed basil leaves to a food processor along with the flax seeds, garlic cloves, grated parmesan cheese, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Turn on the food processor and slowly drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil. Blend until creamy.
3. Add the cooked pasta to a large bowl with the flax seed pesto and mix to combine then serve. Enjoy!
