Special Equipment Needed

Serving Suggestion

Cook 1/2 lb. angel hair pasta; drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking water. Toss pasta with prepared pesto, 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes and enough of the reserved cooking water until sauce is of desired consistency.

How to Store

Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week. Or, freeze in ice cube trays until firm, then pop out and store in resealable plastic bags until ready to use.

How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
