One of my coworkers inspired this post, and she doesn’t even know it. She mentioned that she was looking for pesto sauce at the store one day and couldn’t find it. I told her she could make her own. I have no idea if she actually did, but my own advice stuck with me. I’ve never made pesto sauce, so it was only right if I tried making it myself. After all, I did suggest it to her, blindly.
I love meals that are easy to make and don’t require a lot of prep work. Sometimes I don’t have a lot of time to make intricate dinners, and sometimes I just don’t feel like spending a long time in a hot kitchen. One meal that typically doesn’t require a ton of time to make is pasta. I usually go for spaghetti and red pasta sauce. However, I have recently developed a love for pasta and white sauce. There is a problem with this though. White sauce, or Alfredo sauce, is high in calories. I developed a yummy one pot pasta with garlic and white sauce that is lower in calories to solve all my problems!
