What’s better than pennette with pesto? Three varieties of pennette with pesto!!

 

PENNETTE WITH 3 PESTOS

Serves 6

 

Kosher salt
1 pound pennette or garganelli
2⁄3 cup Basil, Walnut, or Broccoli Rabe Pesto (recipes follow)
Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano for serving
Chopped walnuts for garnish if using Walnut Pesto

 

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot and add 3 tablespoons kosher salt. Drop in the pasta and cook until just al dente.

 

Drain the pasta, reserving 1⁄2 cup of the pasta water, and transfer to a serving bowl. Add the pesto and 1⁄4 cup of the reserved pasta water and stir and toss until the pasta is well coated (add a splash or two more of the reserved pasta water if necessary to loosen the sauce). Serve immediately, with a sprinkling of walnuts if using walnut pesto, and grated Parmigiano on the side.
