One of our weeknight go - to meals is pasta with pesto and protein. We've been experimenting with different nuts such as walnuts and almonds in our pesto recipes. We've found that almonds give the pesto a really nice texture that we enjoy. Our pesto always has really good cheese such as asiago and a lot of garlic. You can find our spinach walnut pesto recipe here, and you can substitute kale or basil or whatever. Make enough to store in the refrigerator for a few meals. Then enjoy it with any kind of pasta and protein for an easy weeknight meal!
