This super simple pasta is a weeknight workhorse and a fun (and budget-friendly!) spin on traditional pesto. Make a little extra pesto to spread on sandwiches for the next day's lunch.

Cooking Instructions

Step 1
Boil Whole Wheat Thin Spaghetti (13.5 oz) until al-dente per box instructions.
Step 2
While pasta is cooking add chopped Walnuts (3/4 cup) and Garlic (3 cloves) to a food processor. Pulse for 30 seconds. The texture will look similar to wet sand.
Step 3
Next add in the Fresh Basil (2 1/2 cups) and pulse for an additional 30 seconds.
Step 4
Add Olive Oil (3/4 cup) in a slow steady stream. If pesto is too thick add in a bit more olive oil. Stir in Parmesan Cheese (1 Tbsp) .
Step 5
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 6
Cut Cherry Tomatoes (2 cups) in half lengthwise. Place cut side down onto baking sheet. Drizzle with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) and season with Salt (1/2 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) .
Step 7
Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until caramelized. You will need to scrape the tomatoes off the pan with a spatula.
Step 8
When pasta is done, drain and immediately put back into pan. Toss with the Arugula and Spinach Mix (3 cups) . Fold in the pesto, roasted tomatoes, ¼ cup parmesan cheese and season with Salt (1/2 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) .
