I have the benefit of cooking pasta on a regular basis for my daughters’ soccer teams…they have pasta feeds quite often, which is a real treat for me, to be able to feed a massive number, since small amounts of food seem to be a challenge for me! These girls are nearing the end of their high school days and tower over me…well let’s be honest, pretty much everyone is taller than me….I can boast a staggering 5’3 and maybe 1/2″ some-days….but mostly I’m just short. Some of the girls tower over me, which is totally fine, but what I love most, is these sweet girls are always so grateful for the food that is prepared for them….well done fellow parents!!!;) The girls seem to have found a certain list of what is always required for these dinners, this being one of them. I’m more than happy to provide them all:) GO CVCHS Lady Eagles!!! You ladies ROCK!!!
1 8 oz block of cream cheese
1 stick of butter (sweet cream, of course)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
6 oz of grated parm cheese
1 Jar Pesto (Classico Brand) I add the brand, only because so many people have a pine-nut allergy, and this brand does NOT include those, which I love!!!
Melt the first 4 ingredients together slowly….on low-med heat, add the cream and milk and whisk. Add the parm cheese and stir well, let simmer for 4-5 minutes, until the cheese is fully incorporated. Once it’s nice and creamy, add the jar of pesto and simmer on low for 5 mins. Toss with whatever pasta shape brings you joy! My girls love bow-tie..:)
I do not have a pic of this recipe, as the dishes always come home very empty, but will post one this week with the next dish!
