Pasta, gelato, and espresso...oh my!
Honestly, a lot of times when I have a pesto dish, I find it can be too oily or too salty (probably because it's usually store bought). But this homemade, fresh pesto was SO. GOOD. It had the perfect balance of all the ingredients. I've literally never had better pesto in my life. I thought the potato might make the dish feel too "starchy," but it was actually a nice contrast to the pasta and made the dish feel heartier than if it was JUST the pasta. And the green beans added a nice flavor and a pretty pop of color as well. Overall, the trenette al pesto felt very light and summery!
10/10 would recommend making this dish!
