My Savory Vegan Pesto Pasta

As amazing as marinara pasta is sometimes I like to switch it up with a pesto dish! This pesto pasta includes basil, kale, tomatoes, onions garlic and much more. Not to mention it takes under 20 minutes to whip up the entire recipe, which if you are like me and usually in a hurry 20 minutes is not bad. I have made my own pesto sauce but for convenience I like to use the pre-made one from Trader Joe’s which is amazing if you haven't tried it yet! This pesto puts a twist on traditional pesto dishes, I hope you enjoy!
