Wild Garlic Pesto Pasta

Wild Garlic Pesto Pasta

Freshly made Wild Garlic Pesto is an excellent way to celebrate spring arrival. The fruits of spring are not as rich as ones of summer. Yet, they are probably more welcomed after a long period of dreariness.

Wild garlic leaves are not accessible in fresh form for too long (only for a couple of weeks), so we better make the best of them while we can. Making pesto is a great way to batch prep the herbs before they wither. 

To make this Wild Garlic Pesto Pasta, all you’ll need is a ready-made pesto from this recipe, spaghetti or any other type of pasta, chickpeas and fresh tomatoes.

This pasta is incredibly easy to make once you have a pesto readily sitting in your fridge and waiting to shine. 

Enjoy this delicious creamy green pesto pasta right away, before pasta gets stiff. Bon appetit!

How to Serve Wild Garlic Pesto Pasta 

This Wild Garlic Pesto Pasta can be prepared from any type of pasta you have at hand, but the whole grain sorts are preferred due to higher fiber and vitamin contents. Replace the wheat pasta to one made from legumes for higher protein content and gluten-free option. 

As usual, don’t forget to get some extra greens on a side for extra nutrition.
