Pesto is Ykaie’s favorite Pasta dish. What was surprising was and she learned to appreciate it at the age of two. And she didn’t like Pinoy Spaghetti at all — at that age. Only pesto — or no sauce at all. Just pasta. Ang weird no? One would think that the first thing kids would appreciate is the white or the red sauced pastas.
I remember she would frequently ask for pesto pasta that it became a regular in our menu rotation at home. We would only change the meat it comes with — chicken, spanish chorizo, sausage, tuna, shrimp. Now we have a new one on our list — mussels. And it turned out so good!
