A delicious pasta dish with shells, pesto and cream sauce. Make it from scratch in under 15 minutes!
There is this fabulous cafe here on the North Shore called The Atomic Cafe (locations in Beverly and Marblehead). They make one of my most favorite sandwiches – goat cheese panini with pesto and tomato. I totally stole the recipe from them when I received my Cuisinart Griddler for Christmas! For those of you who do not have panini grill at home, I recommend putting your bread in the toaster first so you still get that nice crunch.
Turkey is one of the healthier meats you can eat, but my old problem with food was the sauce that I used to put on it. I am a huge fan of the cream sauces and pesto based sauces, which can REALLY add up the calories. Seems kind of silly when you are eating healthy meat doesn’t it? That’s why I love this spinach based pesto sauce. Pesto is usually made from basil and pine nuts, and although it might not seem like it, it can be pretty high in caloric value. This is a great alternative to those of you looking for something a bit on the lighter side.
