I was looking for a quick seafood pasta I could make during Lent and came up with this after reading a few recipes. It is a great meal when you’re in a rush and don’t want to sacrifice quality. For this example I used pesto and sun dried tomatoes from a jar. If you have a food processor I suggest making your own Basil Pesto. I used a generic Pesto but I suggest trying to find one without Parmesan Cheese in it and straining a lot of the oil out. This pasta will cook in minutes and is perfect for anyone trying to cut back on chicken or red meat.
