How to make Spaghetti Pasta In Green Olive Pesto Sauce Recipe

  1. To begin making the Spaghetti Pasta In Green Olive Pesto Sauce Recipe, make sure you have the green olive pesto ready. This is the most important ingredient in the pasta. Keep this aside.

  2. Cook the spaghetti accordingly in boiling salted water until al dente. Once just about cooked, drain the water and rinse it under cold water to stop the process of cooking. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the cooked spaghetti so it does not stick to each other.

  3. To finally make the pasta, heat olive oil in a wok. Add the garlic, the green olive pesto, black pepper, lemon zest and the cooked spaghetti. Stir them all together until the pasta is well coated with the pesto. 

  4. Turn off the heat, stir in the parmesan cheese and the lemon juice.

  5. Serve Spaghetti Pasta In Green Olive Pesto Sauce along with Black Eyed Bean and Lemon Bruschetta for a weeknight dinner.
