DESCRIPTION

This Healthy Baked Pesto Rigatoni is tossed with heirloom tomatoes and a saucy spinach pesto that will knock your socks off.

INGREDIENTS

for the pasta:


  • 1 lb. whole wheat rigatoni
  • 2–3 cups chopped heirloom tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used asiago)
  • pesto (recipe follows)


for the pesto:


  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 cup basil
  • 3/4 cup almonds or pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan or asiago cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large cloves garlic
  • juice of 1 lemon (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. While the water is boiling, chop up the tomatoes – I just cut the little ones in half. add the pasta to the water and cook according to package directions.


2. While the pasta is cooking, place all the pesto ingredients in the food processor until smooth. You may have to push the spinach down periodically to get everything moving. I had to do this in two batches because my food processor is very small. You should end up with 2 heaping cups of pesto.
