From attending my children’s band concerts to carpooling to various sporting events we have a very hectic schedule in my home. Rather than going through the drive-thru on a busy night, I try to plan my meals ahead of time by looking for dinner options that can be created in less than 20 minutes. Since I like to cook from scratch, pasta is usually the go-to meal when I find myself crunched on time. To keep the dish flavorful and stray away from the standard “tomato sauce” pasta dish, I alternate my pasta meals with various recipes like this “Pasta with Parsley Pesto.” This parsley pesto recipe is a simple alternative to the traditional basil leaf or tomato sauce pasta dish and as an added plus; you can grow the parsley in your own backyard! Check out the recipe on the SC Johnson Greener Choices blog and let me know what you think!
