Easy Linguini Barilla Pesto Pasta

I received this product for free from and compensation for this post was provided. My opinions are my own. 

I need easy dinners. 

For one, I hate to cook so the less time I'm in the kitchen, the better.

Second, there are some days when I'm driving all over the place. I'm picking my daughter up from play practice, I'm getting Tommy from a college class (he doesn't drive due to autism and he's not comfortable with it), so yes, quick and simple is a must. 

Barilla has a delicious Pesto sauce. 

All I did is pick up linguini and I cooked it.

Then I added the cooked linguini to the pan and mixed in the pesto.

I added tomatoes to it because I love tomatoes. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and then it was time to eat.


If kids are freaking out because it's green, remind them that a similar pasta is in the Disney movie Luca (out on Disney+ now!) and say that you made the same one. 

You can buy the Pesto at most grocery stores. If you prefer not to have the Pesto with pasta, it can also be used for spreading on sandwiches or toast, marinating meats, or as a dip!
